Letter V for Show and Tell

Sharing is caring!

Do you have a Show and Tell day coming up at school. You know, the one that sneaks up on you when you’re least expecting it? Well I remember one time we had a show and tell day all about the letter “V,” and let me tell you, my morning was nothing short of a comedy show.

So there I was, coffee in one hand, lunchboxes in the other, running my usual morning marathon. Kids and I were ready, and we were about to head out the door when my youngest, with eyes as big as saucers, goes, “Mom, it’s Show and Tell today. It’s letter V day!” Panic mode activated. I had totally forgotten!

With zero time to spare, I did what any quick-thinking mom would do, I raided the fridge. And voilà, vegetables to the rescue! We grabbed a variety of veggies, because who doesn’t love a colorful assortment, right? There were carrots, bell peppers, and a couple of tomatoes (yes, they’re technically fruit, but let’s not split hairs). I packed them in a bag, and we rushed off to school, veggies in tow.

The kids had a blast showing off their “very vibrant vegetables” and even learned a few things about healthy eating. Phew, disaster averted! But it got me thinking, what other letter V ideas could save the day for moms and dads in a bind? So, to help you out, I have put together a fun list for you:

Show and Tell Letter V Ideas

  1. Velvet Anything – Got a piece of velvet fabric or a small velvet toy? It’s soft, it’s unique, and it starts with V. Plus, it’s a great sensory item for kids.
  2. Volcano Model – If you have more time over the weekend, crafting a little volcano can be a super fun project. Then, for show and tell, a little baking soda and vinegar action will wow the entire class.
  3. Vacation Photos – Have any family vacation photos from a place that starts with V? Maybe a trip to Venice or Vermont? It’s a great way to share stories and learn about different places.
