Sunny Arizona gets a bad rap in the summertime, but you can wow the kids by showing them how to use the sun to tell time.
This simple sundial clock is made from a paper plate, a pencil and a free printable clock-face template.
- Paint the back of the plate or leave it plain.
- Cut out the clock face and glue it on the back of the plate.
- Use a hammer and nail to punch a hole in the center.
- Stick a pencil through the hole—then head outdoors!
Be sure to position the sundial with the “12” pointing north to determine the current time.
