Letter V Preschool Activities
- Pick some of your family’s favorite vegetables and make vegetable soup together.
- Make a volcano together. This is an awesome hands-on experience. This kit has plaster and a mold to shape a reusable volcano. It also has pop crystals that make sounds as the volcano erupts!
- Venus Flytrap plant. These plants are super cool! Your child can watch the plant close its leaves as it eats. I gave these as Easter gifts one year to the kiddos. I got mine from Walmart but you can get them online too.
- Share a vanilla treat:
- vanilla ice cream
- vanilla pudding
- vanilla cookies
- For a fun family movie night, you could curl up on the couch with some popcorn and watch classic Veggie Tales. Three of my favorites are Madame Blueberry, Josh and the Big Wall, King George and the Ducky
- Themes you could explore:
- Veterinarians / Pets
- Vegetable Gardens
- Valentine’s Day

Letter V Books
Here are my favorite Letter V books.
A simple book about a child and his dad planting a vegetable garden that they grow so they can make vegetable soup. There is even a vegetable soup recipe in the back.
This is a collection of stories highlighting old fashion morals for children. It doesn’t need to be read cover to cover. You can pick and choose stories you think your child would enjoy. Many are classic tales like Aesop’s fables, like The Tortoise and the Hare and The Boy that Called “Wolf”. You’ll also find other timely stories like the King and the Hawk and George Washington and the Cherry Tree.
The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
This is a classic childhood story about a toy rabbit that wanted to be real. To me, this story is kind of like a combination of Winnie the Pooh and Toy Story rolled into one. (Although The Velveteen Rabbit was written before either of those.)
This is a great story to follow up with the concept of Living and NonLiving Things. You can find plenty of ideas for teaching this concept in the post Living and Nonliving Things Activities for Preschoolers
