My favorite books and supplies to start our preschool year!

  • Glue X page
    1. On a black piece of paper, write a large letter X with a white crayon.
    2. Glue candy bones to the X for your alphabet letter of the week. I found these candy bone sprinkles on Amazon here.

  • Read Jessica’s X-Ray by Pat Zonta. Available here!
    1. We found this at the library and it’s a great book with real x-rays inside.
    2. My 3-year-old loved looking at the x-rays and it was easy to explain that an x-ray is a picture of our bones inside of us.


  • Invisible Xs
    1. Use a white crayon to draw X’s all over a white piece of paper.
    2. Mix up some black paint (watered down)
    3. Paint all over the paper and the X’s magically appeared.
    4. We tried it again with just a fun picture drawn with the white crayon. It was fun to see the pictures magically show up.

  3. This is awesome! I have been trying to find something that I can do with my preschooler during the summer to keep her fresh on her letters and this is perfect! Thanks for sharing!
