|Where did you get your kitten, that she is not even 4 weeks old? She is way too young to be weaned, its usually done at 8 weeks.
The momma kitty teaches the kittens, how to use a litter box, usually at around 3-4 weeks old, so she is about the age, she would be learning from her mother. So you are going to have to teach her.
The litter box should be very shallow, so she can easily climb in and out of it. You cannot use clay litter, it hurts her little feet, your going to have to use the sand like kind. Put her in the box, several times a day, like in the morn, after she eats, after she gets up from a nap, and take her little paws, and simulate digging in the cat box. When she goes, praise her, never never scold her, she doesn't yet understand, what she is supposed to do.
I would leave the poopies or pee in there, until she gets the hang of it, the smell should attract her, and give her the idea where she is supposed to go, altho, some with more experience with this, might have a better idea.
What are you feeding her?
I got mine, when they were 8 weeks old, so they already knew how to use the box. The others should have even better ideas and suggestions, best of luck.
