When shall You buy a watch to Your child? At school they teach the clock to children in grade 1-3. It helps if the children have already been introduced to the clock and perhaps become curious, or even proud, that they are beginning to understand clocks and time. During the children's first three years at school, they will learn a lot. One must, among other things, learn the alphabet, read and write. We parents usually support the imagination and create a nice moment around books by reading fairy tales to our children. But what do we do to help them learn the clock?

How can parents help teach their children the time?

Children are curious! A good way to teach children about the clock is to create an interest, make the clock something fun. A good idea is to read fun, educational books to the children. The website "1 milionboktips.se" has produced a top list and here are three book tips:

  1. Learn the Clock with Greta Gris (2018)
  2. Learn the clock: Playing easy (2020) (3-6 years)
  3. Learn the clock: Playing easy (2020)(3-6 years)

They are really nice books that amuse the children while learning the time in a completely relaxed and age-appropriate manner!


Can something more be done to teach children the clock?

Yes, you can give them your own watch.

Today it is not obvious to wear a watch, "you have a mobile phone after all". But, is it good? No, it's not - but we'll talk more about that in the next blog! ;)

Buying a watch for your child is not a big investment.

Make sure they are comfortable to wear and pedagogic. In school, analog clocks, i.e. clocks with second, minute and hour hands, are the basis of knowledge, so we suggest the same.

Sometimes you are looking for a piece of jewelery for your child or grandchild, a nice watch is a good option! They are not only something beautiful but also wise - and often a nice symbol that you are starting to get bigger. And who doesn't want to feel big when they're small...? ;)
