Today I’m sharing a variety of Letter V activities for preschoolers. We hope you get a chance to try some!

My Three loves doing “activities” with me, and letter of the week activities are at the top of our list!
After months of doing alphabet activities, he knows all his letters and most of their sounds. But we still do these letter recognition activities for a little extra practice. He likes using Do-a-dot markers on my free Find the Letter pages.
To reinforce the sound of letter V, I printed this free funny face coloring page. He colored all the pictures that begin with the /v/ sound.
For a math activity, I wrote the numbers 1-10 on stickers and attached them to toy vehicles. Then I printed the parking lot (you can get in this post). He counted the stars and parked the cars in the correct spots.
Can you tell what this is? It’s meant to be a vase. 😉 I printed a pattern for the letter V (get it here) and cut it out. He painted the stems and flowers.
Of course, we had to do a volcano project. He had fun mixing red, yellow, and orange paint to make the lava.
This was his all time favorite activity! I printed this parking lot beginning sounds page (you can get ten for free here!). I labeled vehicles with the correct letters, and he parked them on the pictures whose names began with the letters.
He must have done this same page ten more times that day! Playing with toy cars is still one of his favorite things to do.
It really surprises me how much he likes these Letters of All Sizes handwriting pages, especially as his fine motor skills need a lot of work. I think it helps that I laminated them and give him a Dry Erase marker to use on them. And this is the first time I was able to get him to try something close to the correct pencil grip – woo hoo!
You’d think that after doing so well on those handwriting pages, writing in a salt tray would be a cinch. For some reason he got very frustrated with this today, as his V’s kept looking like U’s. I pushed my finger into the salt to make three dots for him to connect, but he wanted to make them himself. And it just wasn’t working out.
The V in the photo is one that I made. When it was clear we were getting nowhere, we abandoned this activity.
We finished letter V with a homemade volcano! When I did this with my older boys we made volcanoes in the backyard, but this time we created our baking soda and vinegar volcano right at the kitchen table.
He’d have been happy to make volcanoes all day, but this heavily pregnant mom was ready to move on. We dumped our volcano in the sink and went to the couch to read a stack of books. Check out some of our favorite books for Letter V!
