One of the first things J did after making his homemade Roman Numerals flashcards craft was to assemble them into a clock. And just like that he was practicing telling time using Roman Numerals.

For this activity, we used:

  • Homemade Roman Numerals flashcards
  • 2 bubble wands of different lengths - You could use bamboo skewers, sticks, pencils, etc. as an alternative. Just make sure one is longer than the other.

First, J assembled the cards into a clock shape by putting the Roman Numerals in order from I to XII.

Then he asked for an hour hand and a minute hand. Me, thinking quick on my feet, quickly scanned the sunroom for anything that would work. I spotted two bubble wands that worked perfectly! They were each a different color and a different length, making them the perfect makeshift hands of a clock. J then started running to the kitchen to check the time on the stove's clock before coming back to mark the time on his DIY Roman Numerals clock.
