Do your kids have trouble telling time with a traditional clock?
I’ll admit that it’s been a challenge for my daughter and when I think about it, it makes sense.
We live in a digital age. The traditional clock face isn’t common anymore.
When we’re at home, we often look to the television or microwave for the time – you won’t find a clock face there. It’s completely digital. When we’re out and about, we often look to our smartphones – no clock face there. Truth be told, I don’t even wear a watch anymore….but at least that had a clock face.
The lack of clock faces makes it difficult for our children to practice this basic skill. And practice we must. But it can be fun and I’m a big proponent of taking something challenging for kids and making it more interesting.
So I turned to a favorite brand, Hershey’s, to help me with tackling telling time and a bit of food fun for my daughter’s lunches, whether at home or at school.
Specifically, I headed to Walmart to purchase Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding in both Chocolate and S’mores flavors. The round container tops would be perfect to make a clock face out of. My idea was off to a great start.
I also love the backstory for my family. We’ve visited Pennsylvania many times and we’ve had the privilege of learning about Milton Hershey’s legacy first hand in Hershey, PA. In fact, my daughter recently finished a biography of Milton Hershey to help bring our trips even more to life. So combining a much-needed activity with a snack and a brand full of history – it’s a Win-Win for this mom!
Priced at just $2.48 each, you’ll find 4 ct cup packages of either Hershey’s Chocolate Pudding or Hershey’s S’mores Pudding at Walmart in the refrigerated section (near the yogurt).
These pudding cups are making my life a bit easier. We are in the 4th week of school now. The excitement and new-ness has worn off. I find myself hitting the snooze button in the morning a few extra times (I KNOW!!). Sometimes I find myself scrambling to grab things for the lunchbox quick. So it makes perfect sense for me to stock up on items that are ready to go, ready to eat, and ready for school. Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding fits that to a tee and the fact that it’s rich and creamy and made with real Hershey’s cocoa is the icing on top.

This is brilliant in all the way around. Tasty treats for the family and an educational craft project. Your printables are spot on adorable! Thanks so much!!
What a wonderful idea! This is such a fun way to teach them about time.
It needs little hands that say “It’s always time for Hershey’s”! Then it’d be perfect!

Pudding is such a yummy snack. I really like this idea, you are totally right about there being less clocks with hands around.
Tasty and fun way to get your kids learning time. I like it.
That is such a smart idea for children. We are trying to teach my son right now how to tell time.
