Halloween is coming up so quickly! We’ve been having so much fun learning all about Halloween, and working on Y’s Halloween Interactive Notebook.Today, I am sharing a quick freebie that Y really enjoyed – more Halloween activities with our Halloween themed cutting strips!
Halloween Activities: Free Cutting Strips
Age: Y is four years old
Goal: Practice scissor skills, using proper and safe grasp whilst neatly cutting along the dotted line.
Whenever I present cutting themed activities, I always keep the presentation the same – simple is key, of course.
I make sure to present a bowl for the cut strips, the scissors, and the strips for cutting.
Note: You can also choose to present each of the items in their own plate or compartment to prevent them from moving on the tray. I keep a white foam page in our tray that keeps the items steady enough for Y. When he was younger and had more difficulty keeping the items steady, I did prefer to keep the strips and scissors in bowls or on plates.
Activities like these are so easy to set up and so much fun for kids! The cute images are a simple way to add new excitement to activities that may be repeated frequently. Plus, I love to keep things themed every now and again!
