Cutting with Scissors for Children

As part of our early learning program, the children engage in cutting which is a part of fine motor development. This is an easy activity you can also do at home!

At Clovel, we start with the children using the tripod grasp to rip paper this develops the hand control needed to cut with scissors. We then start snipping with play dough or paper with the scissors. This allows the children to open and close the scissors, stabilise the paper and move the scissors forward across the paper. Finally the children are able to then cut along a straight, curved and more complex zigzag line. From here the activities are endless with what the children can do.

We at Clovel Childcare and Early Learning Centre, provide a very nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. For any information about our Educational Programs, give us a call at 02 9199 0294 or fill in this contact us form
