Handprint Alphabet – X for X-Ray Fish

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!

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