How to make


Cut one of the silver paper chain strips from the Big Bag in half. Then draw around a lid (about 5cm diameter) onto strips of green and white card. Cut out the green circle, then cut the white one a little bit smaller.


Draw the numbers of a clock onto the white piece to create your watch face. Find the centre point and mark with a pin onto the face.


Hole punch a scrap of black card, then draw a circle around the hole and add a 2cm long stick. Cut out to create the big hand for the watch. Repeat to create the small hand, but make it about 1.5cm long. Attach to the watch face.


Attach double sided tape to the back of the face and stick it onto the coloured circle, then tape this into the centre of the silver strip.


Now wrap the strap round your child’s wrist and attach it with velcro at the right length. Trim off the excess.


And you’re done!
