Make a simple paper clock that you can use to practice telling time.
- A printer
- Construction paper (white plus two colors)
- A brass paper fastener
Print out the clock template. Then cut out the clock face and hands.
Glue the clock face onto a piece of colored construction paper.
Either color the clock hands (using markers or crayons), or use the hands you cut out to trace a set of hands on colored construction paper (then cut them out).
Make a small hole in the center of the clock’s face and one in each of the clock’s hands. Using the brass paper fastener, attach the clock’s hands to the clock.
You can now use this clock to practice telling time!
You can write down the times that you do certain things during the day and adjust the clock’s hands to match each of these times.
Some fun times to write down include: the start of school, lunch time, recess, when school lets out, bedtime, and the time of day when the child was born.
