After you’ve gathered your supplies, Cut one 8-inch circle out of the white paper and another 8-inch circle out of the green paper. You can also substitute by using two large white paper plates.

With the leftover green paper, cut about a 4-inch arrow that will represent the minute hand. With the black paper, cut about a 3-inch arrow that will represent the hour hand.

Write hour and minute on each hand. Make sure the hour hand is black which matches the black marker and the minute hand is green which will match the green minutes. This will make it easier for kids to identify the hour and minute hand. Place a paper fastener at the end of the hands and through the middle of the white clock.
