Time Zones

Explaining that I am in a country nearly half way around the world is a difficult concept for a child. Add to that the notion of time zones. Well, that's just nearly impossible.

Any ideas on how to explain time zones to children (age 4 & almost 7)?

We found that a globe made it easier to explain to our grandchildren, but the times were always difficult.

We got a globe but we actually need a working solar system to explain the time zones I reckon. Can't find one on eBay!
