The giant sand timer is a fabulous resource for helping children see how much time they have remaining to do a job or before an activity ends.
These durable giant sand timers are ideal for the classroom and/or home.
They’re a good size, approx 15cm, to use as a visual tool. Each timer is colour coded for easy identification.
Use in games, to make tasks such as cleaning up the bedroom/classroom/getting dressed/cleaning teeth fun or set clear boundaries for activities such as playtime, swimming, computer time or bath time.
They can help children prepare for transitions (one activity ending and another beginning).
They can also be used as a calming resource.
