Clock Tower

Creating a mini town? Do your kids like to build cities out of blocks? Have a go at this clock tower to make sure the trains run on time!


  • Coloured Paper
  • Paper Roll (The cardboard tube)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencils/Markers


  1. Pick which colour you want to make your clock tower (I used yellow) and lay an A4 sheet of paper down.
  2. Glue one end of the paper.
  3. Roll your cardboard tube along the paper so the glued end sticks and the rest of the paper curls around the tube.
  4. Glue the end of the paper down.
  5. Cut out a circle of the same paper and create a cone. Then stick this on the top.
  6. This is now the basic shape. You can decorate it as you see fit. 

This can be used to teach Roman numerals.

You can also use it to talk about time.
