|Balloons filled with playdough|
Enter the calm down basket!!! For us we feel TJ's room is the best spot as we live in a bungalow and there isn't a good corner to use. Here is what is in our basket so far.

Note book and pencil
|Rice jar with little objects|
I plan to add a mind jar and maybe a finger puppet too. TJ communicates very well to toys about his feelings. The mind jar is just too cool, I just need the supplies first.
|I think he likes it!|
Also if you are interested I highly recommend the book the Highly Sensitive Child by Elaine N. Aron. It helped us to understand TJ (and my own) uniqueness.
