Holiday Fun ~ Sun Dial

This is a great activity to keep the children occupied all day.  You'll need an alarm clock or you might forget.
In the centre of the garden place a garden cane or broom handle.  Press it into the grass so that it's standing upright.
On the hour take a stone and place on the tip of the shadow cast by the sun onto the stick. You can write the hour number on the stone if you wish.
Then set the alarm for the next hour.
Repeat until you have all the stones set out.  
Now you can tell the time on any sunny day.
