We’ve quickly figured out as we’ve gotten down to these last few letters of our alphabet book, that there aren’t a ton of things that start with these letters that would be easily recognizable for a preschooler.
Fortunately though, we’ve still been able to come up with a few fun things.
Like the uppercase letter V for example. The shape of the letter itself makes the perfect vase for some beautiful flowers.
Whether you’re making this craft as simply an addition to your book or even as a fun Mother’s Day craft, it is the perfect way to practice the letter V, scissor skills, and even colors with your preschooler.
To make your own, you’ll need:
- A sheet of white card stock
- Colorful construction paper (we chose a wide variety of colors to make our flowers as colorful as possible, but you could use whatever you have on hand)
First things first, start by cutting out all of your pieces. From the orange, we cut our uppercase letter V. From the green, we cut the stems for our flowers. From the rest of our construction paper, we cut out different flowers of various shapes and colors.
Start assembling your craft by gluing your uppercase letter V onto your card stock. You’ll want to have your child try to glue it down towards the bottom of the page so that they have plenty of room to add their flowers.
Then, just start adding your stems and flowers. There is no right or wrong way to go about it.
Just let your little one add as many flowers as they want until they like the look of their vase.
When you’re all done and waiting for the glue to dry, grab the uppercase letter V page below and add it along with your vase craft to your book.
