Tips for Using the Cutting Worksheets
Check out the video to see these tips in action!
1 || Print the cutting worksheets on heavier paper or card stock to make them easier to grasp and stabilize while cutting.
2 || Give multiple opportunities for picking scissors up and grasping them the right way by having the child put scissors down in between each cutting task.
3 || Place stickers on each of your child’s thumbs and then refer to them during cutting. Tell your child to practice “thumbs up cutting”, meaning that they can see both of the stickers on their thumbs while using scissors (on the hand that’s stabilizing the paper and on the hand that’s holding the scissors)
4 || Draw a dotted line from the edge of the paper to show your child where to cut into the paper to reach the shape.

Love them! Also fun for kids to make their own mazes, with applying pieces of tape to a paper and then drawing a path to a sticker target at the end. Ripping the tape and getting the stickers off builds pre-cutting skills and the tape adds some resistance and visual cue .Fun in pairs too :)
