Mad Hatter Tea Party - Pocket Watch Art Activity

The White Rabbit and his Pocket Watch from Alice in Wonderland

Don't be late for this important date... kids will love this craft of designing their own pocket watch, a perfect art activity for your Mad Hatter Tea Party. Here's some step by step instructions to make your own watch.
1. Fold a third of a white piece of card stock over, and draw a circle with a knob on top. Make sure one side of the circle is on the fold.

2. Cut out the shape. Now you should have a pocket watch that is like a card.
3. Get out the crayons, pens, and colored pencils and have kids decorate! You can print out pictures of pocket watched from the internet to give kids examples if you'd like.

4. Here's the outside of a decorated pocket watch.

5. Here's the inside!

6. Punch a hole in the top and string a ribbon through it so kids can put the watch around their necks like a necklace.

Now it's time for tea! This activity will be loads of fun for kids, and, hey, it may even help them with telling time.
