The Bible says that no one knows the day that Jesus is coming back! This little clock is great for any age. It really doesn’t matter if the kids put the number in the correct order or not because we don’t know the time! I love that about this craft, and I think the clock is kind of cute too!
Objective: Children will make a clock that can watch for us
Pipe cleaners “hands”
Time: about 15-20 minutes
Preparation: Use a razor blade or edge of scissors to cut a small opening in the center of the clock face so that the brad will go through more easily. Depending on the age of your children, you may want to cut out the numbers ahead of time and just hand them to the kids already cut out.
- pass out the clock faces and the numbers. Have the children glue the numbers in the boxes on the clock face. It doesn’t matter if they are in order because we don’t know the time anyhow!
- Pass out the brads and poke the brad into the center of the clock face and secure it.
- Wrap a pipe cleaner around the brad and have the children bend and point the “hands” any way they like.
- Glue on googly eyes to complete the clock face
