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!!

Mother's Day Handprint Memory Book...and brunch!

We have an annual Mother's Day Brunch where we invite the moms to come for a little breakfast at the beginning of the school day.  We have breakfast casserole and sweet treats, but the best part, next to the kids singing a Mother's Day song to them, is the handprint memory book we work on all year and present to them.

We put the pages in page protectors and then in 3-ring binders:

LOVE the question-answer page.  It's so funny to hear the things kids say!!

We also scatter pictures of the kids with their friends and doing activities at school throughout the book...but I wanted to show you the handprints we for each month.

SEPTEMBER:  a box of crayons

OCTOBER:   a spider, complete with web, and a memory of their costume.

NOVEMBER:  a turkey, and their favorite Thanksgiving food.

DECEMBER:  Rudolf, and their favorite Christmas gift.

JANUARY:  a penguin

FEBRUARY:  a heart-felt handprint

MARCH:  an Easter chick

APRIL:  a rainstorm

MAY:  flowers...(of course!  May flowers always follow the rain!!)

And an end of year reminder that your sweet kiddos are the gold at the end of your rainbow!

A few of the brunch pictures from this year:

Happy Mother's Day!!
