This easy flower scissor skills activity is really quick to set up and uses materials you’re likely to already have at home – always a good thing! Scissor skills are a really important skill to learn but I know that my kids have never been interested in anything worksheet based – this cute craft makes learning a skill more interesting and it would be easy to adapt as a craft for Mothers Day or to make as a card too.
Easy Flower Scissor Skills Activity
To make this craft you’ll need some cupcake liners, a pen, paper or card, glue and of course some kid friendly scissors.

Start by drawing the stem and leaves of the flowers onto your paper then it’s time to get making the flower petals. Taking your cupcake liners cut into the edges around each one, this is a really nice, simple activity because of course there’s no ‘right’ way to cut them and it doesn’t matter if your petals are big, small or a bit lopsided, in fact I think they look even nicer if they’re all a bit different!
Smooth the petals from your cupcake flowers out a bit and then glue them onto your stems from earlier. If you’d like to decorate your flowers then you could stick mini pom poms in them, some stickers or maybe some sunflower seeds – all of these would be good for fine motor skills too.
