Looking for letter V activities for 2-year-olds? You’re in the right place!

I’ve been teaching my 2-year-old the alphabet – not because we’re in a race, or because I think small children need a lot of structured learning – but because it’s fun.
We keep it light – doing this a few days a week for about 10-15 minutes at a time.
And she loves it!
Here’s our volcano craft – because of course you have to make a volcano for letter V! I cut out the letter V and the mountain. My Two added the paint with a wide brush.
We were inspired by this craft at From ABC’s to ACTs.
I printed our little letter V book. My Two loves listening to me sing the songs and rhymes. Have you downloaded our free letter books for yourself yet?
Not every two-year-old enjoys coloring, but it’s one of my daughter’s favorite things to do. I printed the free letter book from Learning the Alphabet. She colored, and we named the pictures together.
Here’s another Learning the Alphabet printable. We used cookie cutters to add play dough flowers to the vase. I also showed my toddler how to roll stems for the flowers. The short, fat stems are hers. 😉 Such a great way to strengthen those little hands!
Here’s another free letter book you can download on my site. These are useful for two reasons – they offer a great way to reinforce the letter, as it appears on each new page. Also, naming the pictures is a great vocabulary builder.
The rest of our activities were whole alphabet activities. I grabbed some Scrabble tiles, pressed each one into a play dough pancake, and asked my toddler to put matching letters together.
She loved this!
I don’t recommend this for most toddlers, but now that my Two is officially Three (as of 6 weeks ago), I knew she could handle this very simple game with my help. We took turns rolling the die and moving along the path. I helped her identify the number on the die and carefully move along the path.
This is one of my Four in a Row alphabet games. My toddler definitely isn’t ready for the strategy involved, so she played this by herself. She simply named the letters as she dotted them – in no particular order.
I printed this beautiful alphabet chart from Growing Book by Book. We took turns naming each letter and picture and covering it with a poker chip.
“J is for juice.”
“K is for kite.”
“L is for light bulb.”
Finally, I wrote letters we’ve learned on yellow sticky notes. I put them on a baking tray and wrote their corresponding letters on orange sticky notes. My toddler matched them.
We hope you found something in this post to try with your learners!
