Clock with a picture of a child – to make it easier for children to learn to look at the clock

Do you want your kids to learn to look at the clock more easily? Here is an interesting project that can help you with that – make a special clock with a picture of a child.

We found the idea and instructions on the site Instructables, and the tutorial was posted by user Edmondslibrarian.

You will get a very interesting and original wall clock, and the children will, we are sure, master looking at the clock in an hour.

  • Ordinary round wall clock (preferably about 20 cm in diameter)
  • Screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Loiter
  • Watch battery
  • Digital camera

Take a photo of the child first. Best in front of a white or solid background. It is necessary for the child to stand with his legs upright, one hand should be lowered through the body, and the other raised straight above the head (next to the ear with the index finger raised in height). That hand will be a hand for minutes, and the feet will be a hand for a full hour.

Make a photo in the size of 10 × 15 cm (if you bought a round watch with a diameter of about 20 cm).

From the photo, cut out a picture of a child with a raised finger; disassemble the clock, then remove the “secondary” hand. Place the cropped photo next to the hands (as in the picture), then cut it into two parts so that you get parts for the small and large hands. Glue them to the hands. Wait for the glue to dry, reassemble the clock and the project is complete.

Now is the time to master the “technique” of looking at the clock. Of course, you can decorate the watch with details and pack and give it to someone for their birthday. That would be a wonderful gift. Do you agree?
