Cutting practice can sometimes feel like a waste of time, doing crafts instead of learning, though we know that it’s all connected, and that cutting develops motor skills that are necessary for writing. And it’s just fun to make fall-themed crafts that also help with improving cutting skills.
Growing Hands-on Kids has a great roundup of some cutting-practice crafts for fall, including corn made with handprints, pumpkins covered in tape, stuffed paper apples, fall cutting trays and more.
Head to her site for the links to all the fun, get out your scissors and enjoy.
