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 visual timer.
Before children learn how to tell time, visual timers provide a visual cue of how much time is left - "When the green 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 visual timer for teeth brushing and hand washing, signaling the end of an activity, independent playtime, taking turns, playing games, taking breaks, etc.
