Because of this, I wanted to make this printable clock face suitable for everyone. If you are only just starting on telling time with your kid, consider removing the minutes on the clock face - they will most likely be distracting.

But when minutes should be mastered, remove the minutes again!

When you print off the clock face, consider gluing onto something stronger - a paper plate works great, and perhaps some regular card for the clock hands.
Do this BEFORE assembling the hands to the clock face.
