How about making some hot cross buns!
Or look at all the cute X ideas at Cookie Cutter Lunch.
I love the Taxi Dog and books about X-rays are always fun.
My favorite is this cute X-ray Fish Activity by Red Ted Art. And look at this adorable Q-Tip Skeleton.
Instructions for this simple handprint x-ray activity can be found at Almost Unschoolers.
Try this Criss Cross Chalk Game.
Draw a large letter X on the pavement with chalk then have the children position themselves on the end of each line. They have to run along the X without bumping into each other at the intersection.
Play a game of Tic Tac Toe.
Follow a Treasure Map- X Marks the Spot.
Make an X on a piece of paper with Painters Tape. Then completely cover the piece of paper with paint. Let the paint dry and remove the tape to reveal the hidden Letter X below.
Practice playing a xylophone. You could even play musical chairs using a xylophone for the music. Let the kids take turns.
Set up a doctor's office and have the kids practice taking x-rays. You can make a simple x-ray machine by cutting holes in a cardboard box and gluing cut outs of bones on the front.
