Toddler Activities for the Letter W

A fun way to learn about the letter W is to play a game we call, "Where is Wally?" 
I drew and cut out a whale from blue construction paper and wrote an upper and lower case "W" on his belly. I hid him in different parts of the house and the girls had to hunt him down, singing a song that I literally made up in the moment. It went something like this (to the tune of "Where is Thumbkin?"): 

"Where is Wally? 
Where is Wally?
Where is he?
Where is he?
Wally won't you come out, 
Wally won't you come out
and play with me,
play with me."

The first child to find Wally gets to hide him for everyone else! By the end of the game I was wishing I'd laminated him because he was slightly crumbled. My girls loved this game and they continued to play it after I quietly retired.
