Returning to Menu automatically

I am trying to write a script where after choosing an option from the main menu the information from the option is displayed for 5 seconds and then the person is automatically returned to the main menu. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

What have you tried?

Code:
echo "$option"
sleep 5
clear

Whether it lets you return to the menu or not depends entirely on whatever you've tried.
