Make the Letter
Use glitter glue to cover this thin letter K.
This printable has a bunch of letters and the point is to find the Ks and color or trace them.
Toddler School K is for Kitchen Trays
Have dried beans on the tray. Transfer using fingers into a bowl for “soup.” Stir the soup with a spoon or ladle.
Cover all of the holes on the cheese grater with stickers (printable in Toddler Curriculum).
Put beads in a parmesan cheese container. Have a playdough “cake” on the tray. Pour “sprinkles” (beads) onto the “cake.”
Glue buttons on the picture of the blender to look like fruit in a “smoothie.” (printable in Toddler Curriculum)
Have smell matching busy bag on tray. Use kitchen spices to match (cinnamon, cumin, Italian seasoning).
We do 3 Part Cards with every toddler school unit. See how to use them here. I always laminate them because it makes them last so much longer! We often go back and review old cards and it’s nice that they’re all still in good condition.
Use pattern block templates to form letters with blue diamond blocks.
I loved reading If You Give a Mouse a Cookie with my toddler. It’s such a classic and goes perfectly with the kitchen unit.
Letter K Craft
The craft for the letter K is to decorate sugar cookies. If you don’t eat sugar, or if your toddler has allergies, you can always decorate “cookies” with playdough!
I put dry popcorn in the sensory bin along with the letter Ks and K items. I added a ladle and ice cream scoop, too, because my toddler enjoyed using them with the popcorn.
