Remember to SPRING AHEAD!
This time of year always reminds me of clocks.
Ever hear the expression “ask him what time it is and he’ll tell you how to build the clock?” Will mention no names here, Dave. Tick tock you really can build your own clock. Here is an educational clock project for the entire family.
Rembember that Sunday March 12th 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.
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.
Tempus Fugit, hurry up and make a clock cupcake.
An old favorite is making your own paper plate clock.
With all of these clocks there is noexcuse to forget to set your clocks and best of all there is “Spring” and warmer weather ahead of us. This Minnesota cold will hopefully become a memory as soon as possible.
