We are loving the calm down kit for our 3 year old. She has really struggled since the pandemic hit and I’ve been on a quest to help her find ways to regulate, but I often get overwhelmed and can’t think of what to do in the moment...the calm down kit is a great solution. Whenever I sense a meltdown coming (or if one already started) it’s so easy to bring this out and help her regulate so we can talk through things. The pinwheel and bubbles are the only way I’ve ever been able to get her to do any deep breathing while upset so that’s a big win. She really likes using the kit and in the first week or two of use it rescued us from at least half a dozen meltdowns so we are big fans.
The thought and creativeness that goes into these kits is awesome! This kit is perfect for calming down my toddler but also keeps him entertained even when he doesn’t need calmed down!
I bought this for my 3 year old. He is very smart and very logical but when he has a tantrum its out of control! We have tried several things and while some work I just needed more tools in my arsenal. I found Stacy with her calm down kit and my whole life has been saved! No really. We explained to 3 year old that this is his tool box with tools to help him when he is struggling. He now knows when he can use them and they really help him calm down. We recently were evacuated from our house and we forgot the calm down kit! He was devestated. Luckily we got it back! This is such a great set of tools to have on hand for any child not just toddlers. We even put a couple in the diaper bag with us incase meltdowns ensue at the store! We recommend this to all our friends constantly!
We’ve come back to this kit many times over. Various elements have appealed to Our kiddo at different times (and we have replaced the bubble wrap several times over). Its hard to know what to do and keep my cool when my son melts down, having this resource kit as a go to makes things easier for the whole household.
