Preschool Letter C Crafts – Activities Recipes More

Time to add more letters to my letter of the week resources, for preschool classes. I am adding letter C crafts, activities, and recipes. Here is the letter A resources and letter B resources.

 I have gathered a list of different letter C activities from crafts, math, letter, recipes, and fine and gross motor skills. There are lots of letter C crafts to try as well as a letter C printable template.

The preschool room I worked in did two craft activities a day and one recipe a week. The kids loved to cook and eat what they made. I have included recipes and snack ideas.

There were always lots of books different books for each week’s theme. We played games and did physical activities around the letters too. ABCs Yoga for Kids was always a favorite.
