Transform An Old Clock Into A Time Teaching Helper

It’s so hard to teach a little one with all the distractions they have today. Thats why I always think it is great to have a colorful seeing is teaching type of idea. Here we took an old clock and attached it lower on a wall. Then we cut the stem and leave out of green poster board and attached it to the wall with double sided tape. We then measured the how wide our petals would need to be and cut those and attached them in the same manner, We wrote the 30 second increments and the ‘hour’ and ‘minutes’ before putting them up. Makes a great learning aid for a child and creates an inspiration space at the same time.

Makes a great present for the Grandparents or a gift for Mothers or Fathers Day! Finish with straight simple lines for the stem and add an extra few strokes under the foot imprint.

Here long stems with small flowers were placed in a vase and colored eggs were hung from the branches. Very simple but very elegant. Makes maximum impact – think of using long twigs found in your yard over the winter and spray paint all one color or a multitude of colors. Ribbons holding the eggs could be of variation of colors to provide a different look. High vibrant colored eggs could be used with pastel colored flowers/branches or vice-versa.
