This hands-on activity is a great way to teach the concept of time. Buy a big, colorful play clock with moveable hands. Show your child the main quadrant numbers: 12, 3, 6, and 9. Show her how there’s a little hand for hours and a big hand for minutes. When you mention time – “We’ll be going to our playdate at 3:00” – show her 3:00 on your clock.
