Hair Cutting Scissor activity

Benefits

Fine motor development, Pre-writing skill

Age

After 3 years

Materials needed

Paper, pen , Child scissor, Yarn, colored paper.

Scissor activity is a great pre-writing skill which helps to develop hand muscles, finger muscles in particular. It gives the excellent opportunity to use every other portion of hand. Kids need strong muscles before they start to write, so it’s good to do such kind of activities before they start writing.

  • Cut down papers in rectangle/Square shape.
  • Draw some faces on all the pieces.
  • Paste the colored paper on the top (Like the hair on the head).
  • Cut down the colored paper as stripes.
  • Same with yarn too.
  • Provide the child scissor and ask the kid to cut the paper like hair cutting.
  • Instead of cutting the hair stripes , we can draw a line and ask the kid to cut the stripes by themselves.
  • It’s a great pre-writing skill activity and kids love to do the same .
