Summer Time - Fun Paper Plate Clocks
|Seashell Paper Plate Clock|
At this time of year the children are having lots of fun but it's important to continue reviewing previous learning to prevent "summer brain drain" so that children will not forget what they have already learned.
A fun paper plate Summer Clock can be made with the kids then used to review Telling Time.
You can make lots of clocks with a simple paper plate. Use a white paper plate and paint it a fun color, or use any of the fun colors found at dollar stores (usually 20 plates for $1.00), or a seasonal decorated paper plate found at supermarkets, craft stores, etc.
- paper plates
- a thin marker to write the numbers on the plate or on cute stickers
- heavy paper or thin foam to make the clock hands
- paper fastener (1 per plate)
- construction paper or stickers (optional)
- paint + paint brush, markers, crayons (optional)
- glue (optional)
|Fun Summer Stickers|
For the above clock, the clock hands are made from foam sheets purchased at a Dollar store. The seashell foam stickers were purchased at a craft store with a discount coupon! A package of paper fasteners was purchased at the local grocery store which has a great school supply aisle .
Check out the local dollar or craft store to see what is available and maybe on sale! Lots of their summer items are on sale now as they get ready for fall and back to school supplies.
