Cutting Skills

cutting leaves


Take your child outside to collect up lots of leaves and then let them practise using scissors to cut up the leaves in different ways.


Let you child practice using scissors by giving them a cardboard tube to cut up or some cubes of jelly. They will love to make different shapes and build up their scissor skills at the same time.




There are lots of fun ways your child can practise their cutting skills. Let them cut the grass with a pair of scissors, or cut cabbage leaves. If you cook pasta then your child will love cutting up the wiggly worms!
