Football Theme Paper Plate Clocks

Football Frenzy Time is here! Which teams will be competing in the Super Bowl? Use your students' enthusiasm to make some fun paper plate clocks to practice their telling time skills.

Lots of stores have paper plates with a football theme on the shelves now. Buy some to use for Super Bowl Sunday and use the extras to make fun paper plate clocks.




To make the above clock, you will only need a few supplies:
  • paper plates
  • sticky back foam numbers (purchased at dollar stores or craft stores)
  • brass fastener
  • craft foam and scissors
Most of the supplies can be found at dollar or craft stores. (Use a coupon from the internet or your mailbox.)

It would be best for the adults to make the clock hands from the craft foam and attach the hands to the plate with a brass fastener. Let the kids have fun placing the numbers in the correct spots.

To get some ideas for other paper plate clocks that you can make or purchase inexpensively as well as some great ideas and resources to help you teach about time just click on the link below.

Have Fun!
