Letter Cc - What's on the Tray?

Super Tot is 32 months old.

We are having so much fun with our Letter of the Week activities!  Here are some Tot Trays I have planned this week for the letter Cc.

Car Sorting
Sort cars by either Mustang or Corvette.
One of Super Tot's FAVORITE things in the world is cars.  His favorites are Mustangs and Corvettes, and he points them out everywhere we go.  It is unbelievable how quickly he spots them, and how precise he is in always knowing the make and model of dozens of different cars.  I thought he would enjoy this activity for "Cc" week!  I went online and printed off various photos of Corvettes and Mustangs.  I laminated them and created a mat for him to sort the cars by model.  When compiling the photos, I included one of each color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple & pink) for each model.  I plan on later printing the same colors of several other models to use for various Tot School activities from color sorting, matching, counting, etc.  He spotted me getting this one together and has already expressed his sheer delight in the photos!

Counting Caterpillar "Munches"
Count the number of holes in each leaf and match with the correctly numbered rock.
For this activity, I cut leaves out of construction paper and punched holes (1-8) using a basic hole punch.  I glued them to construction paper rectangles and attached a caterpillar to each.  I laminated them for durability, as I plan to use them again for additional counting and math activities.

 Mommy/Baby Cow Sorting
Sort cow counters by Mommy or Baby.

 Days of Creation Poster
Paste each item in the bowl under the correct day of creation.

Cat Lacing Card

Letter Matching

I SPY the Letter "Cc"
Circle all Uppercase and Lowercase Cc's.
I apologize for this picture being slightly out of focus.  I didn't realize it until I uploaded and printed it.  I will be recreating it and replacing this photo with a clearer one in a few days.
~letter recognition, fine motor, pre-writing~

Super Tot will also be doing the following 2 letter crafts.
C is for Clown and c is for clock.
These are part of a letter book I put together for him.  You can read about it and see all of our letter crafts here.
Letter Cc Bible Verses for the week:
"Come, follow Me." ~Matthew 4:19
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right." ~Ephesians 6:1


  1. Great ideas, as usual! My son would have LOVED car sorting when he was little. He could identify the makes of cars way better than I ever could! And I love that you made the creation activity into an activity tray! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday. I just featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page.

  2. Cute C projects! We just made one today. It is a Chocolate Chip Cookie with a big bite taken out of it (so it looks like a C). :)

  3. I love your caterpillar. Number cards

  4. I love the I Spy picture. What a neat idea!

  5. you always have the best trays!!! love the caterpillar munches and those c crafts - so cute!
