Halloween Paper Plate Clock

Learning to tell time can be a very difficult concept for some kids. Here's a Halloween clock that the kids can create to make learning more fun. Plus by tying in crafts with a holiday project the kids won't realize that they are in fact working on a math concept.

Materials Needed

  • paper plate (decorated or solid color)
  • number stickers or markers
  • craft foam
  • scissors
  • brass fastener
  • crayons


Use a Halloween decorated paper plate. (These plates were found at the supermarket. The cost was $1.00 for a set of 8 paper plates.) Or, use a plain paper plate and have students decorate the plate with crayons, colored pencils, etc. (Lots of great color plates can be found at the Dollar Stores.)

Have students place the number stickers on the appropriate places on the clock, or write the numbers on the clock with a marker or other writing tool.

With younger students the adult should cut 2 hands for the clock with craft foam and attach the hands to the clock with a brass fastener.

Enjoy this great TIME of the year!
