great piece for a child's room, it's way cuter than any clock you can buy in a shop and they can be proud that they helped make it. While I wouldn't recommend you let kids loose on the whole project all the marking out painting and glueing would be in their wheelhouse. this is a great way to transform a less than stellar looking clock into something your kids will love

Step 1: Materials
