We’re sharing two free pages of scissor skills printables!

Often, a good pair of scissors and some paper are all you need for creative work to begin. Grab some child-safe scissors and print out these two scissor skills printables. Your kids will love having an excuse to make tiny scraps of paper appear everywhere, and you’ll enjoy watching them practice their fine motor skills. (Scissor crafts are also a perfect pre-writing skill builder as they lay the groundwork for proper pencil grip.)

Click HERE or on the pictures below to print a page of line shapes to encourage scissor skills in younger kids, plus a page of patterned shapes for more skilled scissor pros:

For extra fine motor fun, let kids use a finger to trace the lines on each skills printable page. Kids can also use crayons or washable markers to color in the shapes. Eager learners can even count lines and shapes, name the shapes and identify the colors used.
