I was looking for a Christmas craft to do with the boys, and I came across the cutest clock on the Elf on the Shelf website and knew instantly they would love it! We had the majority of the materials at home needed to complete the clock...minus the main part...a real working quartz mechanism. That's where Ryan comes in...I called him at work, told him how to print a 40% off coupon for Michaels, and off he went to pick up the clock parts on the way home from work! Love that man!
Later that night...
Preston coloring the face of the clock. Later you'll see the "nontraditional" colors he chose for Elfie and his clock!
Consulting the directions again
Making the hole for the clock parts!
Matching up the holes...
Ryan "installing" the clock!
The finished project! A real working clock!
