Cutting practice has been a hot topic around here lately. Logi-Bear is desperate to learn to cut,but Royal is the one that is really at the cutting age. I try to do most of our cutting practice incognito…in the form of crafts! But sometimes you just need a bit more, right?
I made these strips for early cutting practice. Cut each page into strips using the small dotted lines. Then let your child cut on the big dotted lines or the wide solid line!
For the younger learners, these are some of our favorite scissors:
I’m not positive that we have the same brand, but it’s the spring part that I love. That little spring assists young children when their hand strength isn’t quite strong enough yet. It has saved many cutting experiences for us! And when they don’t need it anymore, you can just tuck it away and use the scissors normally!
To make these strips a bit more fun and colorful, you can print them on color paper.
We also get out fun scissors sometimes to change it up a bit.
