V Is for Vulture Craft

V Is for Vulture title graphic

Sure, vultures get a bum rap–but without these guys, our world would be a lot stinkier! Our latest ABC Craft gives an overdue thumbs-up to these dirty-job doers. Thank you, Vultures!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used black, white, light pink, dark pink, and sky blue)
  • V Is for Vulture Craft templates
  • 2 “googly” eyes
  • Glue stick and pencil

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter V Craft

  1. Print the V Is for Vulture Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter V and the vulture body parts onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter V and the vulture body parts.
  4. Attach the letter V to a full sheet of card stock (we used sky blue, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Glue the right and left wings to the letter V.
  6. Affix the vulture’s head to the base of the letter V.
  7. Glue the vulture’s feet, beak, and neck feathers to the vulture’s head.
  8. Affix two googly eyes to the vulture’s head.
