X Is for X-ray Fish Craft

X Is for X-ray Fish craft title graphic

The X-ray fish may think he’s pretty clever, but we can see right through him. Make no bones about it—there’s no need to don your Super-Duper X-Ray Goggles for this ABC Letter Craft!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used dark blue, medium blue, white, and sky blue)
  • X Is for X-ray Fish Craft templates
  • 1 “googly” eye
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil and marker

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter X Craft

  1. Print the X Is for X-ray Fish Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter X and the X-ray fish and skeleton bones onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter X, the X-ray fish, and the skeleton bones.
  4. Glue the bones to the fish to form a skeleton.
  5. Attach the fish to a full sheet of card stock (we used sky blue, but you can use any color you like).
  6. Glue the letter X on top of the X-ray fish.
  7. Affix one googly eye to the X-ray fish’s head.

Learning with Your Letter X Craft

As you and your child assemble your X Is for X-ray Fish Craft, practice saying /ks/–/ks/–box together. (The most common sound of X is /ks/ as in box, fox, and ax.) You can find more tips for working on pre-reading skills with your preschooler in this handy download.

love these craft ideas!

Super cute idea. I try to do an English alphabet art project with 2 groups (about 45 kids) of little Cambodian children ages 3-5 who are attending school for the first time, and learning English at the same time as they learn how to sit in a chair at a table, hold a pencil or crayon, follow instructions and socialize with other children their age. It’s often happy chaos, but they all love the art time and I’m always on the look out for new ideas. Thanks!
