Simple Xx template to print and color
One activity you might want to consider is to watercolor paint a frame for this template:
- Print the template and color in the X x. Point out to the child which is the capital X and which is the lowercase.
- Cut out an X from a scrap piece of construction paper.
- Talk to the kids about how pirates would bury their treasure on an island and make a map of where they put it. They would mark the spot where the treasure is with a big X (X marks the spot).
- Make your own X marks the spot treasure map:
- Draw a dot on a piece of white paper with a little stick figure or the word START.
- Have the children glue the X somewhere else on the paper.
- Let the kids draw a line between the dot and the X. It can be as wiggly and wandering as they like.
- OPTIONAL: Add little pictures of mountains, lakes, snakes, etc that you'd have to walk through to get to the treasure.
- OPTIONAL: Draw a treasure chest near the X (now I know you're thinking, "but Leanne I can't draw!" Well, daddy did the letter X with Kaitlyn and he drew the treasure chest for her -- if my husband, the accountant, can do it anyone can!
- Remember to color in your letters, then glue them to the center of your map.
