Just like using a knife and fork or holding a pencil, using a pair of scissors is one of those things that kids just have to learn to do at some point, but like most things to do with kids it’s a lot better for everyone involved if you can do it in a fun way! My kids were never big fans of worksheets and to be honest I’m not either, I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that I prefer to do activities with my kids that I can enjoy a bit too? Some of these activities have been created for encouraging scissor skills while others are crafts or activities that require using (and therefore practising) scissor skills in a simple and easy way. Hopefully they’ll all bring a bit more fun for you and your kids to getting those scissor skills perfected!

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.

I must admit that I’m a bit obsessed with paper bag crafts for kids at the moment (you can find some more of ours at the bottom of this page). Generally I try to use stuff that we have in the recycling bin where possible but if say, I were to buy a paper bag full of cookies in the supermarket then hey! I’d have a craft material for free! The fact that I have more than one child means that umm… I need to by cookies quite often at the moment but hey I’m hardly finding that to be a hardship and I can’t say the kids have complained either. This cute craft is the perfect way for kids to practice their scissor skills and of course a snack and a cup of tea for parents seems more than appropriate.
