The letter “V” is the 22nd letter of the alphabet and probably one of the easiest ones to learn. While that might be true, especially since uppercase “V” and lowercase “v” aren’t that much different, it doesn’t mean kids can’t have fun learning about this exciting letter!
I’ve compiled a list of 15 letter “V” crafts that will not only teach kids all about the letter’s shape, they’ll also teach kids about the different words associated with it.
Note: As most of these crafts require scissors and paint, I recommend the use of safety scissors and Tempera paint. If you don’t have safety scissors at home, a grown up should handle cutting out templates.
