While we have been hard at work practicing our cutting skills, I just had to crank out another cutting practice printable… Christmas Themed Cutting Practice!
Besides being fun, there are so many benefits of scissor cutting (with proper scissor grasp)…
- provides practice in using the tripod fingers (thumb, forefinger and middle finger) together. The tripod fingers are what work together in controlling a pencil. Developing the proper pencil grasp attributes to good handwriting.
- strengthens your child’s hand muscles
- helps to improve fine motor skills
PS – I can’t get enough of these cute graphics from My Cute Graphics! Aren’t they adorable?!
