This surprisingly easy craft creates a customized routine clock for kids to help them visualize time more accurately, plan ahead and stay on their schedule!
Create structure in the chaos of back-to-school season with this easy after school routine clock.
DIY AFTER SCHOOL ROUTINE CLOCK
The clock is color-coded so that kids can easily follow along and know what task they should be working on. Having structure in the evenings helps develop an easier bedtime routine, which is essential for kids. Their brains are working overtime, so make things as easy as possible for them!
Here’s what you need to make this after school hack clock craft:
- Wall Clock – or if you want 2, this wall clock set would work great
- Permanent markers (6 colors)
- Printed list of activities
HOW TO MAKE THE SCHEDULE CLOCK
Remove the back off the clock so that you can access the face.
Use the markers to color sections of time for the different activities.
Our schedule is:
- 4-5 pm Homework Time
- 5-6 pm Play Time
- 6-7 Reading Time
- 7-7:30 pm Dinner Time
- 7:30-8:30 pm Family Time
- 8:30 pm Bed Time
Put the glass back on the clock.
Print off your list of activities for after school routine and color around each section to correspond with the colored section on your schedule clock.
Make sure to hang your list of after school routine chart below the clock for easy access. I love how simple and quick this clock craft is.
MORNING & EVENING SCHEDULE CLOCKS FOR KIDS
Create another clock for the am. Hang them side by side so you have the am version and the pm version next to each other.
The morning kids schedule could include: wake up, breakfast, brush teeth, catch bus…etc!
