Give Us a Smile!


Precut big smiles from red construction paper. Cut sponges into small squares and place a sponge square onto the end of a clip-type clothespin. Give each child a clothespin and white tempera paint. Help children paint ten white teeth on the top of the smile and ten on the bottom. Encourage children to count as they paint.
