When preschoolers work with scissors, they build up strength in the small muscles in their hands. The development of these muscles is important as they learn to grip a pencil properly later on.

Cutting is also important for building hand-eye coordination. It takes quite a bit of coordination to hold the paper in one hand and the scissors in the other as their eyes track the scissors moving along a line.

To teach scissor skills, it’s important to teach scissor safety. Teach preschoolers that scissors are for cutting paper only- nothing else. Also teach them not to walk around with scissors in their hands.

Then, provide them with lots of fine motor activities. Activities such as threading, lacing, and picking things up with tongs or their thumb and forefinger will help develop those hand muscles.

Once your child has the basics of using scissors, give them plenty of opportunities to those skills. Let them cut straws or paint chips. Snip fringe around the edge of a piece paper. Provide them with worksheets like the ones on this page so they can practice over and over again.
