Use this fun craft to help your kids learn how to read a clock and about different times of day. This project works best for 4 years old and up.
Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)
What you will need:
- Paper Plate
- Crayons, Markers, or Paint
- Construction Paper
- Number stickers (1-12)
- Paper Brad (Brass Paper Fastener)
- Glue Stick
Instructions for the project: Color or paint the back of the paper plate. This will be the face of the clock. Cut out 12 small squares from construction paper. Place the numbers 1 – 12 on the squares, and then glue the squares in the appropriate spots on to the paper plate. Keep in mind that if you do not have number stickers, you can simply write the numbers onto the squares. Draw two clock hands (arrows), one a little smaller than the other. Cut them out. Push the ends (without the arrows) of both clock hands firmly onto the pointed ends of the paper brad, then poke the paper brad through the center of the paper plate clock face. Keep in mind that the paper brad should be loose enough so that the clock hands can move around freely. It can be helpful to poke a small poke first using a craft knife.
