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!!

Preschool is a Hoot!

So, if you are a preK teacher, the first thing I suggest you do is solicit your parents to send in their toilet paper rolls.  Because you're gonna want to do this one, too.  

"O" is for owl.

You're gonna need:

toilet paper rolls, tucked in and taped at the bottom and the top.
a small strip of colored construction paper
white circles cut from construction paper for eyes
patterned paper, if desired, cut into wings (tear drop shaped) and into a small triangle for the beak
googly eyes (of course!!) 

Wrap the strip of construction paper around the center of the tp roll and glue in place
glue on the wings first, then the whites of the eyes, then lastly the beak
follow up with the googly eyes

It always cracks me up to see how different the projects turn out with the same supplies and instructions!!
