Product description

Count down 3 minutes with ease using our much loved hourglass sandtimer. Ideal for preschool children for improved turn taking and activity sharing. It is a very effective visual prompt that helps improve concentration whilst supporting parents and teachers with time management activities. It works because children in particular can actually see and feel the time ticking away. This helps you engage better with the concept of time The material used in the outer casting production of this sandtimer is transparent acrylic with plastic end caps. The inner is a glas tube with coloured sand. We have had our sand timers in production for over 5 years now and they all have a reputation for being very durable and robust. It's size is 16cm x 8.3cm x 7.3cm. Popular ideas for use: Promote successful turn taking with little fuss Focusing little minds on activity sharing Stop reluctance to change a task Age appropriate timing for naughty step techniques How accurate is it? Our sand timers are rarely out but do have a 10% variant either way. Therefore, please bear this in mind if you choose to purchase one. We recommend our digital timers if you are looking for a timer with more pinpoint accuracy.

This is great. I'm a trainee teacher and one of the problems with my early lessons was pace - I had a problem with letting the students take too much time over activities and then I would run out of time. I bought three different timers and I used them to keep up the pace of the lesson. I would tell the students how much time they had for an activity and then made sure I moved the lesson on when the timer ran out. It's handy to have a few different timers for different activities.
They can also be used with younger children and children with SEN to help them with taking turns and preparing them for a change in activity.

this sand timer has REALLY REALLY helped my 3 year old boy with when he has 'time out' .. he was struggling to sit out for 3 minutes before i got this .. now when he shows his difficult behaviour and needs time out i get a peaceful 3 minutes while he watches the sand timer without the usual tantrums !! works very very well for us :o)

I purchased this for pre-school to help children to see how long they have to wait when taking turns on bikes etc. It does the job and is also robust enough for the children to hold and operate themselves.

Got a good deal on this timer have paid more in the past. This is a must for anyone with an autistic child. We use it for thinking time and to count down to bed time, bath time meal times etc. if we want him to put his Leap Pad down we turn the timer over and when the sand runs out he shouts, the timers finished and down goes the Leap Pad no bother!
Worth it weight in gold in our house and also works really well my for non autistic daughter.

I've been needing a visual aid to keep pace in my classes, and this is perfect. My students will be able to see how much time they've got left, and work faster against the clock! Pity it's a little fast.

Love it
Our nursery uses this egg timer technique for sharing toys, our little boys now instead of arguing going to get egg timer themselves and start using it and hand over toy after sand is through (doesn't always happen on own free will)

I wanted a timer to help my children share activities and toys. This does exactly that. And is yellow as promised. Looks solid but i wouldn't want to drop it many times.
