Alphabet Wall: V is for Valley
DH came up with this, and I like it, because it took me only a minute to prepare the materials, and one can have great fun adding little details and stuff while explaining the contrast between mountains and valleys, with reference back to a V shape. 🙂
You will need the following materials: Artblock sheet, a sheet of coloured paper, crayons, scissors, glue.
1. From your coloured paper, cut out some Vs and set aside.
2. Start by drawing out mountains on the artblock sheet. As we drew, we talked about how when you go up, it’s a mountain; and when you go down, it’s a valley. DD found it fun to repeat “up, down, up, down” as she drew and I think it really helps in reinforcing the concept and contrast.
3. Paste on the Vs where the valleys should be.
4. Take your time colouring and have fun adding in little details to fill out the picture. 😉
