Show and Tell Letter Y Ideas

26 Show and Tell Letter Y Ideas

Sharing is caring!

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 Y – 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:

  • animals
  • books
  • 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.
