INSIDE: Paper Cup Wrist Watch Craft for Kids is a fun and creative craft for kids of all ages. It makes a great craft to do during New Years Eve or any time of the year when you want to practice telling time with your kids!

Here is a great video teaching kids how to tell time.

My daughter came home the day before the winter break and told me that she wanted to learn how to tell time. In her class there was only one kid that could tell them and whenever she had to go to the washroom she had to ask that girl what time it was so that she could write it down on a sheet of paper.

I didn’t have many “goals” this winter break, (with all the kids home and the “you know what” spreading, I knew that we would be home and trying to homeschool wasn’t in the cards) but I did want to teach my daughter to tell time during this time. So we made this a few other clock crafts. But to start we watched this video on Youtube. It helped remind her of the basics of telling time.

Paper Cup Wrist Watch Craft for Kids

Gather your supplies.

Take your paper cup and trace the outline of the straps along the sides. Use a pair of scissors to cut along the lines.

Flip up the wrist watch strap flaps and cut off the remaining parts of the cup.

Lay the watch down flat. Take a pen and write out the numbers on the watch face. You can either use a pen to draw the hands or you can cut out a long and short hand from construction paper

Next, I used a plastic needle to poke a small hole in the middle of the watch and slid a short piece of pipe cleaner through.

I also poked a hole through the construction paper hands and thread the pipe cleaner through them both and then folded the edge down to prevent them from coming off but still allowing them to move.

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7.5 year old.
