Full sheets of paper can be tricky for little ones maneuver with scissors in hand.  Often I will cut the paper into more manageable sizes, depending on the project.  Although as you can see, this little cutie was doing just fine.

If your little one loves cutting, then you may want to try our simple circle rainbows, our adorable counting carrots activity and my favorite…silly spring chicks.

I also have a bin with scraps of paper, newspapers, old magazines etc set aside just for cutting.  Some kids what to find pretty images to cut out, and others will be content cutting paper into teeny tiny pieces.  Either way they are learning valuable fine motor skills that you want to encourage.

The kids started but cutting long strips of red paper.  They glued them onto the paper to make simple stripes.  Then they cut and glued on a blue rectangle.  Easy peasy.  Finally the kids made stars by dipping a q-tip into white paint and dotting.  Quick and simple!
