Handprint Alphabet – X for X-Ray Fish

| September 22, 2012 | 11 Comments

Yes, we all knew X would be a difficult Handprint Alphabet craft! There is X for Xenops or Xenopus which can be either a bird or a frog – yes quite right, very confusing! The names are far too similar, the animal far too different.

So we settled on an X-Ray fish in the end.. hoping that you see the craft and you automatically think “X”…

I mean, look at this beauty:

X-Ray Fish

Though I have no idea about whether this is an x-ray fish “live”, ahem, x-rayed, or maybe with a torch shining behind it?! Do you know…? We went for the craft anyway!

You will need another black hand. Spread your fingers when you print. If we did it again, we may use a blue sheet of paper next time!

We cut out a triangle for the head and strips of paper for the skeleton. And of course the obligatory googly eye.
