An important skill preschoolers need for fine motor skill development is cutting. Here are a few ideas to teach practice this:
- Start by introducing the scissors to your preschoolers. Show them how to hold them and remind them that “thumbs are up”.
- Draw a straight line, a wavy line and a zig-zag line on a piece of paper. Have you preschooler work to cut on the lines.
- For more cutting practice, Kumon has a book on Amazon called “My First Book of Cutting”.
