There are games. And there are crafts. But when you put the two together you’ve got a fun-filled two-fer that’ll burn through an afternoon like your Little burns through snacks. Scroll through to find games you can make and play in one sitting.

Time Will Tell

Raid your plastic craft egg stash to make this easy game that pairs analog time with its digital counterpart, in an effort to teach kids how to read clocks. The prep helps in that endeavor too. Just have your kidlet draw hands on your pre-drawn clock faces, and let them write out numbers to match with their favorite-colored Sharpie on each egg half. Then it’s time to play. Get the scoop on a few more DIY time-telling games for your little scholars here.
