Summer Savings for All

First Time Clock AssembledFirst Time Clock

Remember to SPRING AHEAD!

Are you familiar with the expression “ask him what time it is and he’ll tell you how to build the clock?” We’ll mention no names here, Dave.

Tick tock you really can build your own clock. Here is an educational clock project for the entire family.

Tomorrow, Sunday, March 10th, we need to set our clocks ahead one hour marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2A.M.

You can also use this as an ideal opportunity for teaching time.

The ability to tell time is a significant milestone in a child’s educational development and does not have to be a difficult nor frustrating experience. Choosing the right educational time teaching tools can lessen the stress. Fun time teaching toys can also help motivate little ones learning how to tell time.

“Block around the clock! “Here is a nice clock for 3 year olds or older combining both shape sorting and time learning.

It really is a good time all around to learn something new.

This time of year always reminds me of clocks.

Build a potato clock for a science lesson with potato power. Who would think tasty spuds can also do double-duty as an undercover battery.

Time to get a robot? – no I mean clock….
Inspired by mid-20th century science fiction, Kim is the wall alarm clock that literally “tells” time. Simply press on her button nose, and Kim’s eyes light up red as she states the exact time in a quintessential robot voice. With her gold metallic curls, green speaker mouth and her dedication to announcing the precise time whenever prompted, Kim the Talking Clock is sure to be a favorite with humans everywhere.


One potato, two, that’s all it takes to build a clock for you.

You may know potatoes as a good source of potassium, but did you know they can be used to power an alarm clock? Try this Science Saturday educational kit containing a digital clock and the instructions and everything you need (minus the spuds) to run it.

Remember: Saturday, March 12 is Silly Saturday at Totally Kids, a big BOGO day. Buy one toy and get one for 1/2OFF. Free gift wrapping is available on most toys.

This is a photo from startribune.com of the University of Minnesnowda’s TCF Bank Stadium. Look closely at that photo, see all of that white stuff? Believe it or not  there are actually folks who relish the opportunity to sit in this stadium next Monday night for a Vikings Bears game in 7 degrees Fahrenheit or 13.888889 degrees Celsius weather.

The first outdoor home game for the Vikings in 29 years and miraculously waiting on the bench, benched, is a quarterback with more frozen tundra experience than any other that I can think of. That tundra surely looks frozen does it not? BTW – Yay, there should be more snow to snow during the game. So BYOS….(bring your own shovel)

Tick Tock, Can They Beat The Clock? There is a game Monday night and somehow that picture needs to be transformed to game ready? A stadium filled with snow 20 inches deep in spots plus an additional 3 to 5 inches of snow possible by tomorrow night. Now, who wants to help shovel more snow Annette? Seriously, they are going to be looking for volunteers! Can you believe it, volunteers? And then, after all that back breaking shoveling – game time – and no beer?

Tick tock you can build an educational clock, a project for the entire family.

After the frozen tundra and frozen tush, come home where you’ll be snug and cozy in your own football bed
