Day #226 – DIY Clock for Teaching Time


Abby is at the age where she can begin to learn time on a clock. This is a great way to make your own clock to practice this skill. 

First, glue the two plates together.
I found these great foam letters and numbers at the Dollar Store. I drew a dot with a pencil where the girls were suppose to stick the numbers down. Then, we went to work finding the numbers and adhering them to the plate in the proper place.
The next step was to write out the minutes with a Sharpie. Finally, cut out the hands from foam (also found at the Dollar Store) and attach with a paper fastener.
