Instructions:

Recycled Record Clock

  1. Cut out the numbers 1 to 12 from your scrap paper. You can use sheet music, newspaper, magazines, junk mail, or whatever you like.
     
  2. Glue the numbers to the front of your record album. It’s easiest to start with the numbers 3, 6, 9, and 12 at quarter points around the clock to make sure the numbers are evenly spaced. Then, fill in the other numbers around the clock.
     
  3. Most clock mechanisms you can buy are just a little too large for the hole in the center of the vinyl record. To widen the hole by just a little bit, get an adult’s help to open a pair of scissors and gently slice off a small bit all the way around the center hole. This is tough, so be careful! Widen the hole until the clock mechanism fits through it.
     
  4. Insert the clock mechanism through the hole in the vinyl record, screw the mechanism into place, add the minute and second hands, and put the battery in place. If you have picture hanging hardware, ask an adult to hang the clock in your room. Or, you can set it on your dresser and lean it against the wall. Now, you’re ready to rock around the clock!
