Show and Tell Ideas that Start with C

My twins’ preschool class has show and tell every week, and each week’s theme is a different letter of the alphabet. Every week, I spend at least a few minutes brainstorming items we own that start with the letter of the week. I know many other preschool and kindergarten parents are doing the same. I’m making all our lives easier and starting a series of posts that give show and tell ideas for each letter. Here are my show and tell ideas that start with C!

General tips for finding a show and tell item!

Preschoolers can learn a lot through show and tell, and my kids love it! Here are my tips to make choosing show and tell items a little easier.

Decide what to bring the day before (or even earlier!) There is nothing worse than scrambling to get out the door and thinking “Oh no! We forgot show and tell!” I have been there. It’s not fun. Set an alarm or write it on your calendar to take care of this the day before.

If your child has a hard time sticking to the theme, it might help to lay out a few items that start with that letter and let them choose from those. The times I’ve taken my twins to the toy box to look for something, they often had a hard time limiting their focus to the letter of the week. They just want to bring their favorite toy.

Consider discussing with your preschooler that once we decide, he/she can’t change their mind. It has happened more than once that my twins decide what they want to bring, and then the morning of, decide that item isn’t actually what they wanted. This leads to a frustrating last second scramble.

Search your toy box for ideas. You’ll be surprised what you find! If you have letter blocks, they can be an easy go-to idea.

Search your book and DVD shelves for titles that start with the letter of the week.

Foods, animals, places, and characters are my other go-to categories for ideas.
