The Two Minute Turtle Timer teaches us how to pace ourselves. Do you remember learning how to run the mile in grade school? Many of us sprinted in the beginning and by the end we were staggering to the finish or walking. Learning how to pace oneself comes slowly.
With tasks like toothbrushing, kids think faster is better. They and we are eager to get it done. But like with many things, slow and steady, evenly through the whole mouth is the way to finish
This Two Minute Timer is for visual thinkers. The 4 LEDS are each placed inside the each turtle flipper, corresponding to the quadrants of the mouth. The brusher brushes the part of the mouth corresponding to the blinking flipper-follow the lights and without putting much thought, but like Simon Says, follow, brush until the Victory Lap for the tongue.
So now you can brush:
Screens at bedtime.
kids quitting before the minutes is up!
