Free Halloween cutting practice worksheets (fine motor) ~ Fairy Poppins

These Halloween themed cutting activities are great for helping kids to develop their scissor skills.

Scissor Skill Basics

Prompt kids to put their thumb in the small hole of the scissors and turn their wrist so that their thumb is on top. Model how to move the scissors by opening and shutting them, then moving the scissors forward to start again. The song “Open Shut Them” is great for cuing kids into this motion. Children also need to be taught about scissor safety such as always closing the scissors after use and putting them away.

Some children may require left handed scissors or benefit from scissors designed by occupational therapists such as dual control, spring back or long loop scissors. These types of scissors are available at most education supply stores.
