Preschool cutting activity


Use these simple, inexpensive preschool Christmas activities to keep little hands happy during the busy holiday season. These activities work specifically on fine motor skills.


Christmas Cutting Activities

Scissor cutting skills are so important (read more about that here), and getting the house ready for Christmas gives a great opportunity to practice!


Paper Chains

Your child simply needs to cut along the thick black lines on this template. Then loop the strips together to make a pretty, colorful chain, using staples, sellotape or glue.



Simple Paper Decorations

These easy paper decorations are made from strips stapled together. Have your preschooler cut out the colored strips while you staple them together -  have fun decorating your home!
