The Sensory Sensations Erupting Volcano timer has a volcano at either end that erupts red sand that floats to the top.
There are several therapeutic benefits with oil drip timers. The soothing and rhythmic motion can act as a distraction to calm anxiety during periods of sensory overload. Concentrating on the movement of the sand grains from the volcano takes the focus away from emotions and stresses and onto a quiet, stress free activity.
It can be used as a timing device for short term activities such as teeth brushing. The timer takes a few minutes to finish erupting. Then turn it upside down to start it all over again.
The Erupting Volcano liquid motion timer is made from hard plastic, clear water and coloured oils. The sand floats upwards rather than going downwards, so not only is the Erupting Volcano timer a calming, anxiety reducing strategy, it also demonstrates scientific principles.
