We have teamed up with our dear friend and colleague Momma Braga to get you excited for our Glitter Jar Challenge with the Esme & Roy Show on Treehouse.

Esme & Roy is a wonderful show that was produced in partnership with Sesame Workshop. It premiered in August and the Baby Spot and Momma Braga are big fans!

Esme &Roy is about a young girl and her best monster friend Roy going through adventures as the best monster babysitters in Monsterdale. Children love the characters and the challenges they face but Esme &Roy is more than a great show. It gives easy to adopt strategies to help young children regulate their emotions. Take slow belly breaths, self-talk giving oneself a soothing hug and most of all using a glitter jar to calm the body.

Since most children have started or are about to start their new school year, there can be many stressors that trigger a child. From bullying to a new school, children can find themselves angry, alone or feeling stressed. That’s why we CHALLENGE you and YOUR Family to The Baby Spot and Momma Braga’s ESME & ROY’s GLITTER JAR CHALLENGE!

This is a fun after school project to do with your children to not only celebrate this fabulous show, but to introduce and promote healthy self-strategies to help stay calm and cool when things do not go our way. It lets children know that their feelings matter and to be open and talk about what is going on at school, extracurricular activities and at home.

Check out when Momma Braga did the Glitter Jar Challenge with her daughter, Nikki. They had so much fun!

Below is your ingredients (this is so easy and inexpensive to make), the coveted Glitter Jar Song and the instructions on how to make your very own glitter jar!

We then want you to take a picture of your #glitterjarchallenge tag us at #ESME&ROY and #treehousetv. We will retweet all of them! Let’s spread some love, calm and kindness to our children as they are beginning the first few weeks of school.

Glitter Jar Song

 

When the glitter starts to fall like snow-

Take a deep breath, nice and slow-

Watch as it settles all around-

And feel your body calming down
