This is a extremely simple project that kids can do and great tool for learning on "how to read time"
I know there are digital clocks, which is extremely easy to read..
But I am old school and wanted my son to make one...
This takes about 10 to 15 minutes and helps kids build some diy skills...
Step 1: What Do We Need ?
- paper plates for younger kids
- Sketch pens
- paper pin,
- paper tape
One can use decorative materials as well
Step 2: Clock
Draw a circle on cardboard and ask your kids to cut it along the lines.
Draw a crown and get to cut too..
Mark 12 equidistant points as shown and ask the kids to write numbers 1 to 12, draw eyes, nose and mouth
One can leave it to kids imagination to decorate as they like...
Younger kids who cannot cut, can use a paper plate
Step 3: Hands
Now measure a popsicle stick for the hour and minute hands..
Cut then and make small hole using a paper pin.
Note that the popsicle stick can split.. try again... or use use think strips of cardboard
Colour the hands and fix it at the center as shown
Step 4: Play Time
Set a time and play quiz ...
Enjoy time together
I extended with other kids in my apartment and they enjoyed...
