Winter Scissor Skills Projects

Mitten Scissor Skills

by Sierra


Snowflake Scissor Skills

by Kailey

This is a great winter project to use when you are first introducing a child to scissors.  It requires single "snips" only.  You can allow the children to just cut the strips of paper free hand or you can draw lines for them to cut along.  I prefer free hand!

You can allow the children to cut out whatever random shapes they like or ask them to create particular shapes -- like triangles, rectangles or even circles.

Thanks to Sierra and Kailey for sharing photos of their scissor skills crafts of a mitten and a snowflake.
