Paper watches allow children to engage in make believe and explore the concept of time.
: 20 minutes
Draw basic watch templates on the paper. Ask your child what type of design they would like, and give a few different designs for them to experiment with.
Your child can decorate and colour their watch in any way they like. They may like to have some buttons for pretend play, or they make like a watch with numbers and hands.
This is a good time to discuss plans for the watch, and how to plan play in advance.
Once watches are coloured, give your child the scissors for them to cut them out. They will need to be careful not to cut across the wrist bands.
Use sticky tape to fasten their watch around their wrist.
