Tot School 35 Months Letters X, Y, and Z

Tot School Letters X, Y, and Z
35 months

Letter X
It's hard to come up with activities for the letter x.  I really don't like doing activities with xylophone so decided we would focus on x as an ending sound.  Little Sweets found the letter x magnets we had on the refrigerator and she told me the sound it makes.  Then I had her find pictures cards I hid in rice.  She had to decide if the pictures ended with the x sound.  She really liked digging through the rice. 

Letter Y
Y is for yogurt pops.  Little Sweets loved making and eating this yummy treat.  You can get the recipe here.  We used vanilla yogurt instead of plain and didn't add the vanilla.

Letter Z Activities

Z is for zigzag.  Little Sweets loved tracing zigzags in her My First Book Of Tracing (Kumon Workbooks)

Z is for Zebra
I colored a picture of a zebra black.  (Don't use washable markers because they bleed with the paint.)  Then Little Sweets used a golf ball in a shoe box to paint the stripes on the zebra.  She moved the box back and forth to roll the golf ball around the box.  There was a glob of white paint inside the box that the ball would roll through and then onto the zebra.
