Crafts: C is for Construction

This post contains affiliate links. For more information please see my Terms of Use and Disclosure Policy page. Thank you.

We had previously completed a lesson from that focused upon Construction and as we make our way through the alphabet, I wanted to create a C is for Construction craft with my two littles.

The idea was to provide them with construction related images to glue onto the letter C such as a hard hat, a hammer, a ruler, and bricks.  In the true spirit of creation, my children designed their very own original C pictures. Even though they weren't really want I had in mind, the finished products are fantastic.



1. Gather all materials. If you children are proficient with scissors, they can cut out the letter C and other materials needed for their pictures.

2.  Glue the letter C onto the construction paper.

3. Allow your child to glue on the construction related images.  I simply drew a few items (a hard hat, a hammer, a ruler) and then cut out many rectangles for bricks for them to use.  If you wish, they can draw the images or you can print out pictures on the computer.

4. Display the artwork.

Using construction paper in our crafts (both those that are construction-themed and those that are not) is one of our favorite ways to create art. We have made giraffes and Endermen in the past.


  1. That's really cute! Great idea!

  2. Neat idea! I may have to try this with my 3 year old.

    1. If you do, I would love to see how it turns out. Especially since neither of my two created one like I thought they would. I love seeing creativity from kids.

  3. This is a darling idea and one my boys would have LOVED!

    1. Thanks! I don't know if my daughter or my son liked it more (I know my daughter loved gluing on tiny pieces of paper as the bricks).

  4. This looks like so much fun! I love all the great ideas
