How To Make Paper Plate Crafts

  1. Draw The Times

    Draw the correct numbers on the inside circle of the paper plate. It helps to make the 12 and 6 first, and then fill in the rest of the numbers.

  2. Decorate

    Next, decorate the rest of the paper plate clocks however you want (or your kids want!)

  3. Make The Arrows

    On an index card (or another type of thick paper) draw two arrows, one about 1/2 inch longer than the other one. Cut the two arrows out.

  4. Finish

    Tack the arrows in the very center of the plate so that the arrows are able to move around and point to the time!
