The summer holidays are here and its every mom’s worry how to keep the kids occupied and entertained. In fact my biggest worry is also that with no homework for 2 months, Lil P will forget all her school concepts. The last year, I realized that Lil p had got really interested in reading the time. So we decided to make a cute Clock for her to practice her time telling skills.
As usual, I searched my craft stack and we picked up a few things that interested us. Pipe cleaners in red & yellow for the minute & hour hand. She wanted a bird house kind of clock, so we picked up a yellow corrugated sheet and cut into a flower shape. Added a black glitter sheet in the center.
Now isn’t that a simple project? You can use cardboard instead of foam to make it more stiff. You can also change the look or theme using different stickers . since the minute & hour hands move easily, Lil P is having fun moving the clock according to the time she wants to set the clock to.
