The smartphone has replaced many products in our lives such as cameras, calculators, flashlights etc. The same goes with the wristwatch (and the clock). Now we rely more only our smartphones to tell time than our watches. Like candles, our watches have become more of a styling element in our lives instead of being functional. Yet, it would be a shame if our kids are not able to read the time from an analog watch/clock.

This printable set encourages your kids to design wristwatches that suit their personal style. It also has some challenges to test and improve their ability to read analog clocks/watches. Let's get started. There's no time to waste :)

Let's spend some time on this!
