Frog Paper Plate Clocks & Other Fun Frog Activities

Now that spring and spring weather are finally here, it would be a good time for the kids to explore and learn about FROGS and do some fun frog activities.

This 1st activity will be fun and help kids practice some important math skills - telling time.

 FROG Paper Plate Clock

To make the paper plate clock you will need a few inexpensive supplies.

Materials Needed
• paper plate
• crayons or markers
• stickers (can be purchased at dollar stores or craft stores)
• small foam pieces or cardstock to make the clock hands
• scissors
• paper fastener

Directions
• You could use a color paper plate to start or the kids could pick a paint color and paint a white plate.
• Next have the kids write the clock numbers (1-12) on the stickers and possibly add a colored border or a few decorations to the plate.
• Have students place the number stickers on the appropriate spots on the paper plate.
• An adult should cut out 2 clock hands and place them in the middle of the paper plate with a brass fastener.
Now use the new clock to do some fun math activities! :)
