Welcome to our Letter C based lesson plans that can be used for homeschool ideas, preschool lesson plans or just to give you something fun to do with your preschool children.
Letter C Crafts: Cat and Cactus
Next this week we created a C is for Cat Craft. Using black construction paper, cut two circles, one larger than the other, cut out two paws, and a Capital letter C, and two large triangles. Then cut three small triangles from pink construction paper. Other supplies needed: chenille stems, glue, wiggly eyes.
To assemble, glue the small circle onto the large circle. Place paws at the bottom of the large circle. Glue ears to the top of the small circle. One small pink triangle is the nose; the other two are the inside of the ears. Attach wiggly eyes to the face and chenille stems for the whiskers. Attach the top of the capital C to the “body” of the cat (which is the large circle) making a tale.
This project teaches color, shape, and letter recognition/reinforcement, with the use of letters, shapes, and colors.
For your next letter C project we did C is for Cactus (it’s rodeo time in Houston). Print out this stencil of a cactus on brown card stock or construction paper, or sand paper. Cut out the cactus and glue down on another color background – you can do tan for the desert or blue for the sky. Using broken toothpicks glue them down onto the cactus and top with a cowboy hat. You can also include information about how a cactus feels, sort of like the pointy end of the toothpick.
This craft teaches/reinforces vocabulary and phonics skills as well as color recognition.
Note: please carefully supervise children when using toothpicks.
