Christmas Scissor Skills

Perfect for:
  • kindergarten and preschool learners
  • remediation with students who are challenged by cutting
  • fine motor development
  • printing on paper or thin card (card will offer additional support)

Fine Motor Cutting Practice

Students will:
  • cut from the top edge down to the circle
  • use the solid thick line for visual support
  • move from standard, evenly spaced straight lines through wavy lines, zig zag lines to wavy lines of varying length
  • curl each strand around a pencil to make the beards curly
Tip: tape the top corners down to the table with washi tape for extra stability!

Fine Motor Cutting Practice
By curling each strand around a pencil, students will get additional fine motor development and learn a great paper-craft technique to use in their own creative projects.
