Scissor skills workbook

Download and print out our scissor skills workbook for exercises to help your child learn to use and cut with scissors.

To start the process of learning to cut we would encourage you to start by tearing paper to make collages or paper machƩ.

The first task in the book is learning to snip with scissors and make a fringe on the rug. We would encourage you to help your child learn to cut by allowing them time to snip strips of paper to develop the cutting action.

Make sure you give your child the right pair of scissors making sure it is correct for their dominant hand ie. Left or right handed. Ensure that the scissors fit their hands properly and they hold it correctly.
