We love the look of classic wooden timers so much that we made our best selling sand timer set with wood caps to create the sophisciated style. Whether it’s for the adults or the children, the sand timers not only add to your home decorations and designs, but also provide practical use for the transitions of activities with your child, as well as his learning the passing of time.
Children learns the concept of time visually and sensorially through these sand timers made in fortified glass.
Time is an abstract idea to most young children. How do they learn to tell time? They need to understand the passing of time first. Using a sandtimer, they can learn to observe the different length of time. They can observe and measure the time it takes to fill up a tub of water, or how long it takes to run from one spot to another.
We can also use the timers to help facilitate the morning routines from waking up to getting dressed, having breakfast, to brushing teeth and putting on shoes and be out of the door! Tidying up toys can be fun with a competition with a time limit set by the timer! What other creative ways can you think of to incorporate the timers in your daily life?
