    For months I've been seeing this photo of a time-out stool float around Pinterest and wondering about a diy version. I haven't tried it, but I have two ideas that are sure to fit your diy skill set.

Finer sand can be purchased at a high price.The real question is... Do you have your child stay on the stool for as long as it takes the sand to drain. If so, then you'll want 15 minutes, or 30 minutes worth of sand and would probably need to time it. You could also reduce the diameter of the hole between the two to restrict the rate at which the sand flows from one side to the other instead of adding/subtracting more sand. posted by sarahrae on 01.17.12 at 05:31PM I love the way it looks, but we do tim

    GREAT idea. One clip for each kid. As long as they are good and kind and not whiny on a road trip, clip stays up. If clip gets taken down, they miss out on the next fun thing - gum at the next gas station, ice cream cone, extra time on the ipad, choosing the next movie etc.
