  • Prepare the craft by cutting out all the pieces. You can choose to print the watch faces in color, or have the children color them in.
  • To fold the watch face, fold the bottom flap up first, then fold in the side and tape the side flap together. If you do it this was, you can slide the watch strap through the watch face. 
  • Prepare a finished craft, and draw some things you’re thankful for on the back side of the insert. Explain to the children, that we should be thankful to the one true God for all the things in our lives that we are thankful for.
