Early childhood educators know that one of the most critical outcomes of their work with young learners is kindergarten readiness. While many important skills factor into kindergarten readiness, the ability to physically write is high on the list. In order to write, children must master fine motor skills that are the product of years of practice, through play, creative activities, and encouragement from the adults in their lives.
Are you looking for a simple, easy-to-set-up activity that is fun and developmentally beneficial? Practicing scissors skills with a quick cutting activity is a great opportunity for children to engage in playful learning while building fine motor skills and small muscles in their hands and fingers.
