Sand timers are ideal for helping young children develop an understanding of time and help with daily routines. Our sand timers are sturdy and durable with moulded end caps and thick wall surrounds. The five minute sand timer contains blue sand.
Sand timers are an ideal way of representing time elapsing in a concrete and visual way. Our range of timers have been selected because they are large (16cm high) and simple as well as being very very robust and therefore particularly appropriate for young children.
There are many ways a sand timer can be incorporated into daily activities to help to mark short periods of time or to set a time limit and generally reinforce the fact that an activity is now "finished"
