Mindfulness Sparkle Jars

Today we made Glitter Jars in class – Lily’s mum told us about this activity after she did a Positive Education Course. Thank you Penny!

The idea is that sometimes our thoughts, stresses or worries can “cloud” our perspective and we can’t see through the cloud (just like the glitter when the bottle is shaken).

But when we wait a few seconds, we watch the glitter settle. We take time, feel our breathing and rest. things seem clearer, just like our glitter jars.
