Enjoy these letter X activities for 2-year-olds!

We’re almost done with our letter of the week activities!
For (over) the past year, I’ve been doing alphabet activities with my Two. Full disclosure: she recently turned three.
Clearly we haven’t done a letter each week. At the beginning, just after she turned two, we spent several weeks on each letter. As time rolled on and she got better at this, we did two letters in a single week. Then, at various times, life got in the way – and we took some time off.
We currently have relatives visiting, so we kept our letter X activities short and sweet.
She began by coloring the little book from Reading the Alphabet. In the past, she’s really enjoyed coloring these books and “reading” them with me.
This time, she was done after just one picture. Of course I didn’t insist that she color the whole thing – it’s important to keep these activities light and no pressure.
She is always excited to do these Do-a-dot pages!
After the paint dries, peel off the tape to create a beautiful picture!
I grabbed this letter find page from my own site, and she did great. It’s been interesting to see how much more thoughtful and deliberate she’s become with this activity as she’s gotten older.
We grabbed straight objects from around the house and made X’s.
This was our alphabet review activity. I wrote some letters on a long strip of bulletin board paper. Then I wrote the same letters on sticky notes, and she matched them.
I saw this adorable craft on Preschool Alphabet, and my Three loved it! In fact, her big brother (five years old) wanted to make one too. First, each of them drew themselves on the cut-out template I got from the site.
Then I showed them how to draw their bones on a piece of black paper. We stapled both pieces together to make a fun flip craft!
Finally, I pulled out these “which one is different” worksheets I made a few years ago. I was delighted with how much she enjoyed these! She drew an X on the image in each row that didn’t belong. I’m not sure how well she’d have done as a young 2-year-old, but now that she’s just turned three, these were a big hit.
If you try these, I’d do just the level 1 pages for a young Two. Do these alongside your child. And if writing the letter X is too hard, give your child an ink pad and an “X” stamp.
We hope this small set of ideas gave you some inspiration! .
