Printable Quiet Book- Clock

Today I am sharing the seventh post in the Printable Quiet Book Series. This clock is perfect for helping your child learn to tell time, or simply to play with! 

From the first post: When our first daughter was little, I painstakingly made a felt quiet book. I spent hours cutting out pieces and hand embroidering, it took me months. My daughter loved it and played with it often, but I always wished it was easier to add pages to it. I wanted to add new pieces and new pages, but it seemed like a daunting task. 

Our second daughter is just at the age now where I am wishing for a quiet book again. When I started saving ideas and thinking about what I wanted to do for her book, I realized that a printable quiet book would be so much easier. It would be perfect for people who don't think of themselves as crafty and it would be easy to add more pages to if I wanted to later. So the printable quiet book was born. 

Between my husband and I, we have finally completed the book and I am in love with it. There are paper dolls and play sets and all sort of amazing that doesn't take more than some printing and cutting. 

You will need:
  • The Printable Quiet Book Page
  • Scissors
  • a brad
  • a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)

Print both the background of the clock and the hands. Poke a hole in the middle of the clock. There is a small dot there so you will know where to poke it. Laminate the clock and the hands. Poke a hole over the hole you created previously and holes through the end of the clock hands. Slide a brad through the clock hands and the clock. Bend the brad arms on the back to secure the hands to the clock face.

Add it to your quiet book and you have a page that is a lot of fun without a lot of work! Check out the other pages of the quiet book here:

That's a pretty awesome idea especially if you have preschoolers who are learning the basics like telling the time! I really love how easy it is to assemble as well.

My kids loved quiet books when they were younger! It was a great way to keep them entertained but not to noisey at the same time!

I love this! I started homeschooling my kids this year and my three year old could use a clock like this! I could see us using it for my older kiddo to teach him to tell time and my 3 year old for a count down.

This is perfect for teaching younger children how to tell time. It's a concept that can sometimes be difficult for them to master.

That's a really cute idea! I love having children practice telling time with a manipulative in front of them, instead of an app.
