Letter of The Week X x !

X-ray
X

I thought this x-ray x would be a fun activity to start the week of Halloween, but but you can omit the orange paper and do the craft any time of year . Older children should be encouraged to draw and cut out the bones themselves, in which case regular old construction should be used in place of the foam sheets.
  1. Gather your materials. You will need one orange and one black piece of construction paper, 2 sheets of white foam , a pen, scissors, glue and crayons. We are using all the metalics , white and black crayons, just to stay with a Halloween theme.
  2. Have your child color the 2 pieces of paper, although it looks like fantastic squiggles, and they are fantastic, my son informed me that there were cats and a witch on his paper.
  3. Although we simply colored another option would be to use fun Halloween stickers .
  4. While your child does that you can draw a bone shape on one sheet of foam, and layer it with the 2nd and cut out.
  5. Trim the black piece of paper into a square and glue on the orange paper.
  6. Make a X with glue.
  7. Add the bones!

    Very cute! We’re going in order and are just starting “D” so it will be a while – but by then she will really “get it” and will love making the “X”!!
