Now I Know My ABC’s ~ w is for whale

It's time for some fun alphabet crafts!! We hope you enjoy these! If you are new, you can visit our ABC webpage to find links to any other letters we have done, letters (with books listed) coming up, as well as all the fun crafty letters we have been working on. Be sure to check it out!


The Whale and Jonah by Laura Dreyer

Summary: A fun retelling on the story of Jonah and the whale ~ from the whale’s perspective!


What You’ll Need:

  • blue craft foam {two shades if preferred}
  • white and black craft foam
  • scissors
  • optional large wiggly eye
  • pen and pencil

How to Make the ‘w’ for whale:

  1. Cut out a lowercase ‘w’ from a piece of blue foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 6” x 4”.
  2. Using a piece of blue foam 8 1/2” x 5” in size, cut out a body for the whale.
  3. Cut a 1 1/2” circle out of white craft foam for the bottom of the whale’s eye.
  4. Cut an 3/4” oval out of black craft foam for part of the whale’s eye and a small white circle for the center of the eye.
  5. Glue the lowercase w onto the whale’s tail.
  6. Glue the eye onto the whale.
  7. Draw a mouth on your whale.
