Moon Phases Wall Hanging

Décor Wall Clocks

A moon phase clock is not just a decorative piece of watchmaking, but also can be a useful tool to conceptualize the phases of the moon, also known as the lunar phases. Using the center point to represent the Earth, the moon phase clock is a visual representation of how the position of the Earth and the shadow of the moon interact to create lunar phases. clock kits can be purchased in many craft stores, making it an easy project that children can accomplish with the help of an adult.

Explanation

Using a large plate, draw a circle on the cardboard.

Moon Phases Wall Hanging 1

Cut the cardboard circle and use the scissors to carefully push a hole in the center of the circle. When doing this project with children, an adult should assist in this step.

Paint the dark blue cardboard circle and allow it to dry completely before proceeding. You can paint a yellow band on one side of your clock to indicate the direction of the sun.

Cut twelve images of the moon phases. Be sure to include all the phases of the moon full moon to new moon, when the moon is not visible, and the first and third quarters, when half of the moon is visibly illuminated.

Glue the phase images of the moon in your cardboard circle at the points where the numbers would be on a conventional clock. Imagine the sunlight comes from the right of the clock. Place an image of the moon for the first quarter, which has just the right illuminated half, to 12 hours. Paste the image of the moon in the third quarter before fixing an old wall clock, showing the opposite side of the illuminated moon, the brand to 6 hours. Halfway between the moons quarter, the new moon and the full moon should fall to 03 hours and 09 hours, respectively. Fill in the other hour marks with remaining images of the moon phase, using a lunar calendar as a guide if necessary.
