Fun Foam Clocks

Fun Foam Clocks

by Catie Hayes of

Materials : Two sheets fun foam, craft glue, scissors, 3D paint pens, grommet, hole punch

Instructions : Trace and cut out a dinner plate sized circle from one sheet of fun foam. Use one color 3D paint pen to write the numbers on the clockface. Use another color to draw small lines marking 5 minutes (one line by each number on the clockface). Use a third color to draw lines indicating the remaining minutes. Allow the paint to dry overnight. Next, cut a short and long arrow shape from the second sheet of fun foam. Use the hole punch on both arrows. Poke a small hole in the center of the clockface with scissors. Using a grommet, attach the arrows to the clockface.

Use : Use the foam clock to demonstrate movement of the hour and minute hand. Point out the significance of the minute demarcations as well as the 5 minute demarcations. Count all lines showing the 60 minutes of each hour. Alternate setting the clock and having your child identify the time with calling out a time and having your child set the clock accordingly.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
