Telling time activity may looks a bit much for toddlers, but it can be fun when we use shapes or things that our children like.
First step to telling time activity is to let our kids familiar with the face of the clock and it’s features.
Usually a clock is round-faced, has 12 numbers and 2 hands that keeps on moving.

How to Use the Valentine Preschool Printable Clock
This printable has 2 differentiated activities.
Activity #1: Match the number
This first activity is for kids who are not fluent with number sequence yet.
The Valentine clock has number hints on it.
Your kids just need to cut the love-shaped numbers and paste them correspondingly.
Activity #2: Arrange the number
This second activity is a bit advance.
There will be no number hint on the Valentine Clock.
Kids need to cut and paste the number on the clock.
Tips : For a beginning, I let Miss 5 to take a look at our clock and copy the numbers from the clock.
It’s simple but the kids learnt a lot from this.
If your toddlers are unable to match the numbers yet, which means they just scramble them; don’t be demotivated. It’s ok.
Maybe we need to do more shape matching activities, such as :
- Match the leaves with same colors or same types
- Match the bead with its colors
- Match the lego according to its sizes
- Match the stones according to its types
But, hey, let them have fun with those love-shaped clock. Cutting and pasting helps a lot to build their fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.
