Lots of kids have trouble with transitions, even transitions to good things. Giving a five min warning, then a 2 min, then 1 min, then ten second countdown might help. Also always talking about what's going to happen next, like you're narrating everything. "Right now you have five more minutes to play, and then we will get your coat and shoes on and get in the car. I'll tell you when your five min are done". Then give the choices like others have suggested. The book "The Happiest Toddler on the Block" is a great read also.
