Kids Craft for telling time and learning numbers

Making paper watches is one of my kids' favourite crafts. It gets them interested in numbers and the concept of time and telling time.

Heres what we do:

1. First we draw out the watches.



2. Then we paint the straps.



3. Then we decorate the straps with stickers. We decorate the girl ones with flowers, hearts, princesses and glitters and the boy ones with superman and car stickers.



4. Then we cut them out, put double sided tape at the back of the strap and wear them.



5. Watches for sale at only $5 a piece. Anyone? ANYONE? Hahaha.



Its an extremely simple craft. The very best part of the craft is the proud look they have on their faces when they wear them and the way they carry their arms up at a certain angle so that the watch will not drop off. Now thats priceless! Sometimes they even ask to wear it to sleep. Hahaha.
