I’ve seen calm down boxes all over Pinterest, so what makes this one so special? well, its under $25 and took about 10 minutes to get the supplies and put it together!
A calm down box is a great way to help calm a child, with activities and comfort items. It is a safe way for a child to calm themselves and feel in control. Calm down boxes work for all ages, and are an excellent way to direct a child’s energy into something safe and distracting.
I went to the closest dollar store, which happened to be under 5 minutes away. I started off by finding a box. The box I found looks a lot like a 80s arcade, or maybe outdated bus seats. But it works.
