I created all of my Show and Tell A-Z lists when I realized I was struggling to think of things for my preschooler to share each week. Here are all of my show and tell ideas for letter I – so you don’t have to scramble at the last minute too!
Tips for Finding Show and Tell Items
When I try to think of items for show and tell, I try to go through various categories of things we have in our house:
- food/drinks (real or pretend)
- TV/movie characters
- family member names (to send a picture)
If all else fails, I send a foam letter from our bathtub toys or a letter from a wooden alphabet puzzle.
