The Sensory Sensations Double Heart Liquid Motion timer has double the fun, with two colours in the tubes. The coloured oil slips out of the inner slots to create a flattened blob effect as it descends.
Oil Liquid Motion timers can have therapeutic benefits as well as being mesmerising and calming to watch.
Some of the ways in which it can be used are as follows:
* As a simple timing device during activities such as brushing teeth. A fun way to distract from the actual activity and set a time limit on completing that activity.
* As a reward for completing an activity
* To calm during periods of sensory overload
* As a distraction during episodes of sensory overload
* To reduce anxiety during stressful periods – the rhythmical drops can have a soothing effect
* For visual tracking – watching the droplets descend through the centre of the tube.
* To demonstrate the scientific principles regarding viscosity and liquid densities
