Make a sun clock

Mother & Baby (UK) - - BABY & TODDLER -

Find a stick and 12 shells or peb­bles. Then drive your stick into the sand, pop a shell on top of it, and draw a big cir­cle around it. Check the time and then look at where the shadow is fall­ing. If it’s 3pm, put a peb­ble down on the shadow and write the num­ber in the sand. Evenly space the rest of the peb­bles around the clock to mark the hours. ‘Let your child de­sign the clock the way he wants to,’ says Cassie. ‘He’ll be think­ing about shape and pat­tern, but if he’s in­ter­ested, you could talk to him about how the shadow slowly inches around his clock, help­ing to show you the time.’
