We had previously completed a lesson from SchoolhouseTeachers.com 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.
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.
