Magnetic Sand Hourglass
Just imagine something way more interesting than a regular ol’ hourglass of falling sand. That’s what we’ve got here. Instead of boring ol’ sand, its exciting iron filings that fall onto a magnetized wooden base and as they do so all the filings stick together and create these one-of-a-kind pieces of iron art. Now don’t be fooled. Its less of an hour glass and more like a 35 second glass cuz thats about how long the whole process takes (so don’t try to use it to time your kids getting dressed in the morning).
