Clock Creature
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

Turn a plain alarm clock into a furry bedside buddy and give your child a frighteningly friendly face to wake up to.

What you'll need

  • Alarm clock
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Marker or pen
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • 1/4 yard faux fur
  • Tacky glue
  • 2 adhesive-backed Velcro dots
  • Masking tape
  • Giant googly eyes

How to make it

  1. Step 1 - Clock Creature

    Trace the face of the clock onto a piece of cardboard.

  2. Step 2 - Clock Creature

    Draw a head around the clock outline, then draw a pair of feet. Sketch the clock window on the head, using a ruler to approximate its size and placement, and cut it out. Cut out the head and the feet.

  3. Step 3 - Clock Creature

    Trace the head and feet onto the back of the fur and cut out the shapes. Glue the fur pieces to the matching cardboard pieces.

  4. Step 4 - Clock Creature

    Attach one side of each Velcro dot to the clock face and the other to the back of the head, lining them up. The Velcro will let you remove the head to access buttons or dials. Tape the feet to the head, leaving a N-inch gap to allow for folding. Finally, glue on the googly eyes and stick the head in place.
