Sand timers are an ideal way of representing time elapsing in a concrete and visual way. This is a large thirty minute sand timer (16 cm high) and is very robust - ideal for young children! The thirty minute timer is appropriate for children who need a longer period of time before transitioning from one activity to another. Use the thirty minute sand timer to:

  • Help with finishing screen time
  • Reinforce that an activity has finished
