Lil' Miss Smarty Pants was created to share activities (mostly crafts!!) you can do with your own kids or in a teaching setting...almost all of the activities use simple everyday items that are found in most homes with kiddos. We have spent a lot of time looking for fun activities that also have teaching/learning value, and several years trying them out with our preK class. Here are our favorites!!

This is a fun "game" we use to help our kiddos hone their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.  Prep is easy and they love this game.  You can "play" different ways, like ask them to pick up all their blue fuzzies, then their pink ones and so on.  You can ask them to pick up 5 fuzzies then 4 more.  It can be used as an activity to count, add, subtract, or tell their colors.  Or they can just simply see how fast they can pick up all their fuzzies!

You will need:

training chopsticks
a cup or other container to put them in

You can get regular cheap chopsticks at WalMart and put a rubber band around the top of them to make them into training chopsticks, or you can buy the connectors, like we have, or you can buy actual training chopsticks.
