Today I went to IKEA with my best friend a got a lot of cheap stuff to get crafty with.

One thing I brought home was a plain seethrough clock I got for 99 cent and I decided to make it my new craft room clock.
And since I'm a preschool-teacher I have tons of kids drawings laying around. So I thought: why not bring them together?
I just took out the paper that was in the clock and cut one of my favourite drawings to size, punched a whole in and set that whole thing back together.

The result:



Nothing too spectacular, but I thought I`d share.  Grin

Oh, I love this!! So much that I'm going to lift the idea Wink  My dd is learning how to tell time and it would be such a fun project to "make" this clock together.  I know she'll be tickled to see her artwork in it.  Thanks for the inspiration Smiley

oh, this would be a *fantastic* mothers/father's day gift from a pre-schooler, or any kid, I suppose.  I especially like the look of the hand-drawn numbers.

This is a case of "so simple, yet so brilliant"

This rocks.

Cool! I can't wait 'til Ikea comes to Florida!  I'd stock up on clocks for that price. Looks great.Was it difficult to get the clock apart and back together again?

That's a nice drawing for a preschooler. Looks like the work of at least a second grader! That's a compliment.  Grin
