Today we are making a meditation jar. 

You will need:
  • Clear jar with lid
  • Hot water
  • Glitter Glue
  • Optional: more glitter, confetti, beads, etc.
  • Breath Prayer Handout
  • Scissors
To make a meditation jar:
  1. Pour an entire 6 oz container of glitter glue into a clear jar.
  2. Add any additional glitter, confetti, beads, or other waterproof craft supplies.
  3. Fill jar with hot water (not boiling, just hot).
  4. Twist the lid on tight (you might consider adding hot glue around the perimeter).
  5. While water is still hot, shake the jar vigorously until glue is dissolved.

To use the meditation jar:

Shake it up! You can do this for as long as you need to shake out any extra energy, anxiety, frustration, or jitters. When you're ready, set the jar down and breathe deeply as you watch the glitter settle.

Imagine that the glitter represents your thoughts, words, and actions, and remember that, just like Jesus calmed the storm, Jesus can calm our hearts.
