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!!

"L" is for Lion

One of the easiest ways to help kids remember what a letter looks like is to make it into an animal.  When my kiddos were little, they loved the LeapFrog videos with the dancing letters that sang about what sound they make.  In fact, I single handedly give credit to them for my daughter learning her sounds!  :)  

So here is our version of an "L" is for Lion:

Simply cut out a large letter L out of brown construction paper, then cut out the "details" shapes...legs, tail, ear, and mane out of orange or yellow paper (be sure and fringe the mane so it looks like hair), and a brown nose/mouth.  When assembled, glue on the googly eye and draw the details on feet and face with black marker.
