An important skill preschoolers need for fine motor skill development is cutting.  Here are a few ideas to teach practice this:

For cutting-

  1.  Start by introducing the scissors to your preschoolers.  Show them how to hold them and remind them that “thumbs are up”.
  2. 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.
  3. For more cutting practice, Kumon has a book on Amazon called “My First Book of Cutting”.
