Our final activity this month is based on the Time Squared gallery. This week’s topic is MATH, and we’re practicing reading a clock and counting the numbers.

You’ll need:

  • Paper plate
  • Construction Paper
  • Markers
  • Paper fastener
  • Scissors
  • Decorations


  1. Use a pencil to lay out your numbers on your paper plate, make a tick for each hour.
  2. Label your tick’s with numbers 1-12.
  3. Cut own two arrows, one for the hour hand and another for the minute hand (should be slightly longer).
  4. Decorate the face of the clock.
  5. Use the butterfly pin to push through the ends of each arrow and then through the middle of your paper plate, creating the clock.
  6. Practice learning how to tell time with your child.

Learning how to tell time is tricky, especially now that most clocks are digital. But telling time is still a great skill to learn. It teaches your child how to count up, count down, and about minutes and hours and then read the clock in the museum’s Time Squared on your next visit!
