Make a Time Zone Wall For Extended Family

30 Minutes

At one point all of our four kids were in other states which was hard on us as we'd always had at least one or two close by. So I created a "Time Zone Wall" in my living room using plastic clocks, painted frames and 5x7 photo reprints.
Inexpensive plastic clocks
5" × 7" frames (purchased mine at the dollar store and painted them.)
Photos of each person
Spray paint for frames if desired.
I found these cheap plastic clocks at Walmart for $3.98. The bright white was perfect. Had they been another color I'd have painted them.
I bought some Dollar Store frames and spray painted them.
Wasn't the same as having them close by but it did help and I smiled every time I looked at it.

    This is SUCH a good idea! I used to live in California and was always doing the add three hours and two hours thing with my family haha.

    I have seen something similar at airports and restaurants, but never in a home setting. It makes perfect sense - in fact, I think it is brilliant!
