Letter "Cc" Week

We've got our coffee and creamer and we're ready to stop being crabby and get down to "Cc" week business! Go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smartypants/184737734925189 and post pictures of what you do!  We'd love to see your smartypants in action!

Crabby Hands

  1. red paint
  2. googly eyes
  3. white construction paper
Paint hands with red paint and press hand firmly onto paper on each side.  Drop some glue and put on your googly eyes.  Done and done!  If you want to back it with paper to make it look even prettier, be our guest.

Cinnamon C's

  • 1 roll Pillsbury bread sticks
  • butter
  • sugar
  • cinnamon
Roll out dough and let your smartypants make the letter C.  Brush on melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar.  Bake according to the directions on the roll of bread sticks.

Crayons...Homemade Style!

  • broken crayons
  • muffin/cupcake pan (don't be shy to get creative with your smartypants...if you have a heart-shaped pan, you can color your heart out!)
  • Pam
  • toothpicks
Use broken crayons/break whole ones, spray a muffin pan with Pam, place the crayons with different colors your smartypants choose, and bake in the oven @275 degrees for 6-8 minutes. (Depending on the type/size of pan you use, it may alter the cooking time. You want them melted, but not scorching.  If there are a few chunks of crayon in the middle, it's ok- it will dry/mold divinely!) Swirl the colors around with a toothpick to supersize this fun, and freeze the crayons in the tray for about an hour.  They'll pop right out and your child can have a blast creating an art masterpiece with their new crayons! 

Letter Hunt: Your letter bucket is filled with cats, crayons, cards, cotton balls, cars and much, much more!

Fine Motor:  Cotton Ball Pass ~ Let your little one develop their fine motor skills with this cute little activity!  Get two bowls or cups and fill one with cotton balls.  Let your smartypants take the tweezers and pass to the other bowl or cup.

Books:  Below are a few suggested readings for your little ones.  You should be able to find most of these books at your local library or around the house.
  • The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
  • C is for Curious by Woodleigh Hubbard
  • The Berenstains' C Book by Stan and Jan Berenstain

"Little" Tip of the Week:  When you're out running errands, this is a great time for learning for your child.  How many school buses do you see?  What color are they?  Do you see any stop signs, flags, garbage trucks?  And when we get to a red light, the boys always sing, "Red means stop, green means go, yellow means wait, even if you're late!" 

Grab your steering wheels, SMARTYPANTS, because we're cruising out of the letter "Cc" and driving into the letter "Dd"...
