So as a babysitter I get asked a lot of questions from the wee one I watch during the week. Things like what time is it? When is mommy picking me up and can we have lunch yet? Let me remind you she is only 3 and full of these questions so when ever I can i try to get her to answer her own questions with teaching tools. I was recently watching Miss Spider's Sunny Patch with her and they made a sun dial out of webs and pictures to show the little buggy's how to tell time. I thought I can do that. So I took an old clock printed off pictures of normal day activites and placed them in the hour slot where they normally occured. I also removed the Minute hand, since she is only three and this would only confuse her. I then placed a frame filled with circles around the outside of all the pictures and vuala.



this shows when she gets dropped off with me (Car), lunch time (Lunch Pail), nap time (Kitty and Puppy sleeping)


Nap time cont., When momma picks her up (Mommy holding Katherine), and this was made during her nap time the only time I have to really do anything lol.


Play time (Kids in the grass), Dinner time (Dinner plate), Bed Time (Winnie the pooh)


Then there's waking up (Sun), Breakfast (Bagels), and another Play time.


I can't wait to see it in action since she's still getting used to me asking her what time it is insted of the other way around. Thanks for looking.
