Fine-motor skills – cutting using scissors accurately - knowing how to carry and pass scissors safely.

  • If you have any Christmas cards that you received for Christmas why not cut out your favourite pictures and make them into tags for presents next year. Hole-punch a hole and thread some ribbon or string through the hole. Put your tags in a safe place for next Christmas, maybe with the decorations.
  • Create a snowman using the snowman shape cutting sheets.
  • Give your child a sheet of paper or even a paper plate and get them to snip a fringe around the edge. What could you make it into?
  • Draw zig-zag or wavy lines for your child to cut along.
  • Let them experiment cutting different materials such as cardboard, strips of wool, tin foil or straws.
