9 CREATIVE DIY CLOCKS TO HELP KIDS TELL TIME


With the countdown to the new year in motion, I thought it’d be fun to round up some creative clocks you can make for kids.

These fun clocks are great tools to help your children tell time, regardless of whether you’re counting down the clock or using them to keep schedules in place.
