We made this craft for a lesson on stewardship and how we spend our time. It’s a bit labor-intensive, so leave plenty of time. Also, you will want to have several adults/teens available, as some kids will need significant help. I printed the circles in several different colors to give the kids lots of options for their colorful clocks.
- Paper plates (I used colored to make it look fancy!)
- Colored card stock
- Printable Clock Circles for numbers (2 sheets is enough for 7 clocks)
- Printable “Always Make Time for God” sheet (or write it yourself)
- Brass brads
- Large needle (or other sharp item to poke hole in plate)
- Print enough Clock Circles pages for the children participating. Two sheets is enough for seven children.
- Have children write the numbers 1-12 on their circles and then cut them out.
- Glue numbers on plate, looking at a clock for reference if needed.
- Cut out “Always Make Time for God” phrase and glue on plate (towards top or bottom), or write the text on using a marker.
- Poke a hole in the middle of the plate. (Adult job)
- Use scraps of colored card stock to cut out hands for the clock.
- Poke hole through ends of hands and push the brass brad through them. (Adult job)
- Line up with hole in paper plate and push brad through. Spread prongs on back of plate to hold clock hands in place.
- Let glue dry.
