Giving young kids plenty of warnings before ending a fun activity, like a 10- and five-minute countdown, can make transitioning from one activity to the next run more smoothly. If you have a toddler, though, your little one probably won't understand what 10 or five minutes actually feels like, or in this case, what it looks like. When I realized that a verbal heads up wasn't cutting it for my 3-year-old, I bought this Yunbaoit 60-Minute Visual Analog Timer ($19), and it's become a lifeline for helping him move through each phase of our evening routine with less pushback and meltdowns.
