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!!

Egg Carton Counting

Are you saving all your used toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, soda bottles??  

A great way to help kiddos visually see how many things a number actually represents is to make several Egg Carton Counters.

Simply write the numbers 1-12 on the bottom of each spot.

Give each kiddo a cup with a bunch of something in can be beads or it can be something fun and edible, like Cheerios, Skittles, Kix...HINT:  Edible stuff is preferred by the kids!!  :)

Then they put one Cheerio in the "1" spot, two Cheerios in the "2" spot...and so on.  This is a great way for the kids to SEE how much 10 is....
