Terrific Letter T Activities for Preschoolers

  • Have a Teddy Bear picnic.
    • Pack a picnic lunch to eat with your child at a park or in the backyard. Let your child bring along a teddy bear and a book like Teddy Bears’ Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy.
  • Set up a tent. You could go camping at a campground or try one of these ideas:
    • set up a tent in the backyard and pretend to be camping
    • set up a tent in the living room and spend the night in it.
    • set up a tent inside as a reading area
  • Grow tomatoes.
    • Help your child plant a starter tomato plant in a pot.
    • They can have the job of watering it. What a sense of accomplishment they will have when they get to share something to eat, with the family that they grew!
  • Ideas for Family Movie Night. ( To see if the content in a movie is right for your family check out 5 Best Family Movie Reviews Sites )

  • Taste Test Experiments
    1. Use 4 small cups of water. To each cup add a tablespoon of one of the following. Let your child dip a Q-tip in to taste each one. (Use a new Q-tip each time.)

    2. Try a taste test with real food. Suggested items.

  • Preschool theme ideas for the letter T:
  • Build a Turkey
    • In my neck of the woods, turkeys roam our yards year-round so I tend to not think of them as only a Thanksgiving thing.
    • Using a strainer and some feathers, build a turkey. ( This is a great way to build Fine Motors Skills ) I got my strainer at the Dollar Store.

Letter T Sound

The Letter T makes the sound /t/ as in turtle

Here is an awesome video by Jack Hartman – Letter T Alphabet Song for Kids. This is a fun way for preschoolers to learn to recognize the letter T, how to write upper case and lower case letters, and the sound it makes.

Animals That Start With T

Preschoolers are fascinated by animals. You can build on that interest by sharing activities like singing songs or reading stories about animals they are interested in. You can follow stories up by having your child draw a picture or create hands-on play scenes with plastic animals.

  • tiger
  • toucan
  • tick
  • tortoise
  • turtle
  • tapir
  • turkey
  • termite
