Elementary students may be quite a few years off from actually voting, but it’s never too early for them to look forward to the day when they actually can. It’s a right that did not come easy to many, and should never be taken for granted. The more active participation in our political process, the better everyone is represented.

This tutorial shows students to make the V-O-T-E block letters, and then add a fun cartoon burst in the background. Cartoon lettering 101 AND a reminder about this importance of voting? Not a bad two for one.

Materials for VOTE Letters

Note: This post contains affiliate links.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright. *affiliate link
  • Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks! *affiliate link
  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. *affiliate link
  • Black Sharpie Marker. Great for making a crisp outline to your drawing. Use them when you want your outline show up, but not be so heavy that it detracts from other things. *affiliate link
