Santa's beard Scissor Skills

Kids love trimming and cutting activities, and you can introduce them as early as 1.5 years old to practice cutting playdough with Toddler safe scissors. Kids master this skill over time and can cut by moving the scissor forward across the paper.

So this printable is for kids who are ready to cut along lines.

What are the benefits of scissor skills activities?

This printable pack contains three pages which you need to print and cut to make 11 individual cards. To make it easy for your child to hold and cut, I recommend printing them on thick paper such as Cardstock. We usually use 250 GSM Cardstock paper for Scissor skill activities.

How to Use the Scissor skills cards?

Once the cards are ready, let the child pick their favourite card and give Santa’s beard a trim. Instruct the child to start cutting along the dotted lines from the bottom.

Encourage a THUMBS UP position while holding the scissor.
