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.

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.

TulipsHere in Minnesota we are hoping that there will be some “Spring ahead” for us and the sooner the better.  With eight foot snow drifts and ice covered roads there is not yet a visible sign in site.

Setting our clocks ahead early tomorrow morning will at least feel like the first step in looking forward to welcoming warmer weather and longer days.  After an unbelievable fifty days of subzero weather so far this year, Spring can not arrive fast enough.

It’s about time, literally and figuratively, to remember daylight saving (not savings) time officially begins tomorrow: Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 2 a.m. The concept of something much like DST was referenced by Benjamin Franklin in a satirical 1784 essay titled An Economical Project.

So let’s spring ahead.

“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.
