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.

I mean, look at this beauty:

We cut out a triangle for the head and strips of paper for the skeleton. And of course the obligatory googly eye.
Perfect little alphabet craft for preschoolers, don’t you think? Red Ted enjoyed discussing the shapes!
And here is Pip Squeak’s:
