These Jumbo Sand Timers are not only colourful but also extra large, making them great for kids to watch time go by. They are perfect for helping kids keep track of time wherever they need it.
Transitions (moving from one activity to another) can be really tough for young children, especially when they're doing something they really enjoy! A helpful tool used in childcare settings and schools is a timer.
Before children learn how to tell time, sand timers provide a visual cue of how much time is left - "When the orange/purple disappears, it's time to ________"
They create predictability and can help children move through the schedule of the day a little easier. They're perfect for helping to manage routines at home.
Use a timer for teeth brushing and hand washing, signaling the end of an activity, independent playtime, taking turns, playing games, taking breaks, etc.
The squared-off, soft-rubber end caps offer increased durability and allow for quiet pausing of the timer.
Please note: Jumbo Sand Timers are not precision timing devices, so there may be slight time deviations.
