At school this year we have more than the usual amount of screamers. A couple of the kindergarteners throw temper tantrams the volume of which I have never seen before. So here are some soothing devices. In the front we have some beeswax in green and white. The special education teacher gives this to upset children, so they can distract themselves by playing with it. In the back are two boats I folded while waiting for a child to stop screaming. Office managers need soothing devices too.

We have been discussing self soothing lately. Especially when it comes to Lucy. She doesn't have self soothing capabilities at night, which sucks for me! So, this will be something that we try to work on this next month. Fun stuff.
I have had students that need such devices. I like that you found ones that work for you as well.
