Analog Paper Clock for Kids with Moveable Hour and Minute Hands

I have an analog clock pattern that can used with a telling time unit!  I've designed this paper clock to be both functional AND decorative.  Print the clock frames on a variety of colors of card-stock paper to make a bright and inviting display of student work!  Students can decorate the frames of the clocks with magic markers or crayons to make it their own.  This way, you'll have a collection of unique analog clocks that can be displayed on a school bulletin board or in the hallway.  The children can decorate the frames with geometric shapes, stars, swirls, zigzags and anything else that they might imagine.  I'm showing a few possibilities in the photos below.  I've included both a circular style clock frame and a square clock frame.  I've also included two styles for the hour hand and the minute hand.  Create a catchy phrase to go with the display.  Here are a few ideas:  "It's TIME to go Back to School."  "It's TIME for a New Year."  The latter phrase could be used for a January bulletin board.

These analog paper clocks will make learning to tell time fun and engaging for your students!  The moveable hands make these clocks interactive!  Use the clocks when students are learning about the numerals on a face clock or when teaching the difference between the hour hand and the minute hand.  Make each clock unique by having the students decorate the frames with crayons or magic markers.  Display the clocks on a bulletin board with a catchy phrase such as, “It's TIME for a New Year."

The face of the clock is printed on regular white paper.  There is an inner circle on the face of the clock.  The minute hand extends out of the inner circleThe hour hand remains within the inner circle regardless of the hour it points to.  This might be helpful when teaching children to identify the hands of the clock.  The hands of the clock will need to be printed on colored card-stock paper.  You will need brass fasteners to attach the hour hands and minute hands.  This will cause the hands to become moveable!  Watch the video shown below to see how the clock is assembled.

Students that are skilled with using scissors can cut out the circles for the face of the clock and the clock frame.  I recommend that an adult cut and hole punch the hands of the clocks.  I used a specialty punch tool to make the extra small holes in the hands of the clocks on the ones I've displayed in the video.  A regular hole punch will also work if you're careful to center the hole.  You could just poke a hole into the hands of the clock with a sharp pencil.  Click on the image shown below to get the freebie!  There's more exciting news coming this week and I'll finally get to those probes I mentioned earlier.  Check back soon!
