Pretend play tea bags for tea parties, made from fabric scraps. Good gift with a nice tea set for a little girl. I had tea parties with my mother and grandmother all the time as a little girl, I'd love to pass this on!
Calming jar-tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom - I think I love this idea. Better than a simple time out for temper tantrums. some days I think that I need a calming jar.
