Settle Your GlitterApp Made By: Momentous Institute
About the AppSettle Your Glitter is a an app featuring a virtual calm down jar developed to help children regulate their emotions through calming visuals aimed to create positive self regulation habits. The app consists of a visual calm down strategy children can use when they are feeling worried, mad, sad, or silly. When you enter the app it asks the child how they are feeling. Once an emotion is selected, they rate their feeling from not feeling that way at all to feeling it in the extreme form. The child then shakes the phone or tablet to fill a virtual snow globe with glitter. A pufferfish expands and shrinks nearby to give the child a visual to take deep breaths alongside. The child can take deep breaths and watch the glitter settle at the bottom of the snow globe. This app is an excellent way to provide an on-the-go visual with a self regulation strategy and eventually help promote independent mindfulness and emotion regulation.
- The glitter will take longer to settle based on the severity of the emotion the child reports. For example, if a child is extremely worried he will have more time to take deep breaths, watch the glitter fall, and calm down.
- The child can decide if he is emotionally regulated once.
