Letter of the week activities are a fun way for kids to learn their letters. Hands on projects, like the Letter C craft: styrofoam cup cat help solidify letter names and sounds and are fun for kids to make as well. This simple cat craft is made from a Styrofoam cup and is easy for preschool and kindergarten kids to make. Since the cup is open on the bottom, the cat can also be used as a puppet! Kids will love making and playing with this cat craft and they will easily remember the letter C after making this fun activity. Before we begin, I have a great book list for teaching the letter C!

Glue the black tail to the back of the cat.
Glue the ears to the top of the styrofoam cup to complete the cat.
