Need some fun activities to keep the kids busy on New Year’s Eve? Try making a countdown clock!


  • Paper plate
  • Craft foam
  • Metal fastener
  • Glitter glue
  • Marker
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glue
  • Scissors

1. Paint entire paper plate with glitter glue, set aside to dry.
2. Use scissors to cut out clock arms from craft foam.
3. Cut a strip of foam about 4″ long.
4. Glue circle to one end of the strip of foam.
5. Use glitter glue to draw a design on the circle. Set aside to dry.
6. Poke a small hole in the ends of the clock arms to insert the fastener through.
7. Poke a small hole in the center of the paper plate.
8. Use the marker to write on the clock numbers.
9. Insert fastener through the clock arms and then through the hole in the center of the plate.
10. Close back of fastener loose enough so that clock arms will move.
11. Paint the outside edge of the paper plate as a border.
12. Check to be sure the glitter glue on your “time marker” is dry, then glue it to the back of the plate, aligning the design with your child’s bed time.

Make a simpler version of this craft using foam sticker numbers and a plain paper plate instead of glitter glue and the marker.
