ABC Book: Letter X

Admittedly, the letter "X" is probably the most difficult letter of the alphabet to illustrate.  Let's face it, the number of "X" words is quite limited.


So when faced with the challenge of creating some kind of "X" themed craft for Blonde Warrior to add to his ABC book, I chose a common phrase rather than a word.


I cut two strips/sections from a old map.  (Normally, I would have had Blonde Warrior do the cutting himself, but the sheer size of the fold-out map was a bit too much for his little hands to maneuver.)    I, then, encouraged him to glue them across the "X" pattern on his page.  He used a red marker to make a small "x" on one strip of map.  

So for this week, "X, marks the spot!"
