1000 Show and Tell Ideas for A-Z

Need some show and tell ideas?  Stuck on what to have your child bring in for show and tell letter i?  Or y? You’ve come to the right place. I have compiled a list of 1,096 show and tell ideas for you for each letter.

Does your preschooler have a letter of the week show and tell? Need ideas for some of those letters? I've got over 500 show and tell ideas from A to Z.

We are only a few weeks away from my son finishing preschool and he has had a wonderful year.  His teachers are fantastic and he is in love with school.

One thing that defined our year was Show and Tell. 

What is Show and Tell?

In many preschools and kindergartens children bring in an object from home and present it to their classmates. Kids typically describe the item they bring in and explain why they chose it. Many schools decide on a theme for each week or follow a Letter of the Week schedule.

If your kiddo has never done show and tell before you could show them this cute little video that explains show and tell.

Every Thursday up until Spring Break my son had to bring in an item that began with the letter of the week. Some weeks it was easy for him to think of show and tell ideas for what he wanted to bring in and other weeks not so much. 

So I thought I’d share some letter of the week show and tell ideas with you while they are still fresh in case you’re in a similar situation and you need to help your child think of something.

Also, my #1 tip for Show & Tell:

Set a reminder on your phone for the night before so that you remember to have your child pick something and put it in his or her bookbag!

alarm for show and tell ideas for letter of the week show and tell

Because you don’t want to be me, the mom who forgot until we were in the car drop off line and then had to dig around in the car until we found something!

General Show and Tell Ideas: If you get stuck try to think of toys your child has, play food they might have in their toy kitchen, animals, or favorite characters that they might have an action figure or stuffed animal of.

Here are some letter of the week show and tell ideas for each letter to get you going and hopefully help you think of something:
