Print the clock and draw hands that show what your real clock will look like at nap time, bed time, or anytime you want to teach and then label them with a short word.
Let your little one color their new clocks while you discuss with them what those times mean. ”when our clock on the wall looks like this one with the short hand on the 3 and the long hand on the 12 that means it is time to take a nap”
Throughout the day look at the clock to compare (especially when the time is the same!)
Soon they will be able to tell when it is the right time without even having to look at their papers!
Cigar Box or similar (most tobacco shops will give you one free of charge if you ask!)
Pretty Duct Tape or Contact Paper
Foam Stickers (or normal stickers)
What to do:
Cover the lid inside and out and the sides of the box with your duct tape or contact paper. I Used a beautiful butterfly print duct tape, but after all the stickers were on, it looked a bit busy so a simpler base might be better, but she still loves it!
Now let your little on go nuts peeling and sticking all over to make it their own. They will work on their fine motor skills while making something that is just for them.
Now fill it up with all your little one’s treasures and have a blast!
Just start out by selecting the “given c” option and put in your waist measurement (+2-4 inches depending on how fitted you want it and how stretchy your elastic will be) and it will give you the Waist Opening Radius
Next select the “given r” option and input the radius of your finished skirt. See my photo above for how to measure this. Skirt Length + Waist Opening Radius = Radius of finished skirt.
Ok so my little angel didn’t take much of a nap today, but I at least managed to get 2 of these and a skirt all measured and cut out this afternoon….perhaps tonight after she goes to bed I’ll try to get them all stitched together….
And after all that I got about 1/2 way through and ran out of thread…. I really thought 1 spool would be enough ….guess I will have to put this off another day or 2, but I promise to get it done and posted for you asap!
