Wood Turning Supplies - hourglass

My 5 year old grand daughter has recently shown interest in a sand timer in a board game. I decided I'd make her one. I have turned some hourglasses in the past and had bought my sand filled glass from I believe Penn State Ind. It appears they do not carry this any longer. Klockit does carry a 30 minute model, but it's a kit complete with spindles and the bases.
I've googled for hourglass and sand timer and am having problems finding a supplier.
Does anyone know where I could get the sand filled glass components to turn a 60 minute hourglass?
Thanks in advance.

P.S. I see Rockler offers one but they are oversold until Feb.

Lee Valley carries them. I don't know how much you are planning on spending for one, but here is the link.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
