Instead of banishing your children to the time-out corner and having your kids ask you if their time-out is done yet every 20 seconds, why not try out this unique Time Out Sand Timer Stool. The time out stool is a stool that has a sand timer built right into it with sand that will last for about 5 minutes, which as far as I know, is the standard time for a time out.
Essentially a giant sand timer made into a stool, the time-out sand timer couldn't be easier to use. Just flip the stool over, and make your child sit on it until the sand timer runs out.
This way they won't have to ask you if their time out is done, as they'll be able to just look down, and see whether their time is up yet.
The kids time-out stool is perfectly sized for kids aged 2-5, and will allow them to learn the basics of time and being able to time their own time-out!
Although it seems to be discontinued now, the time out sand timer stool was sold on the website Wisteria for around 120 bucks!
There's now another sand timer time-out stool that's sold on the Chinese website Alibaba for around 20-36 bucks depending on which version you select.
This Chinese version comes in a few different colors to choose from, and even comes in different timer increments depending on how long you like the time-outs to take. You can choose between sand amounts of 30 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 1 minute, or even just 30 seconds.
There's actually another version of the time out sand timer stool available on Etsy, that's more of a DIY looking version.
The one sold on Etsy is made using two two-liter bottles that connect in the middle to create a sand timer.
You can snag this version on Etsy for around 120 bucks!
