Black and white Christmas scissor skills printables…

Both the Santa and the Christmas tree also come in an easy to print black and white version.

Toss out some crayons and markers and let your little artists color their own pages. Be sure to color before any cutting takes place to cut down on the frustration of coloring off and on cut edges.

Let’s practice cutting…

Have your student begin by cutting out the entire tree or Santa shape. If your student is very young this step could be done for them.

Provide a size appropriate pair of scissors. (Too big scissors are especially har for little hands to manage.”

I like to encourage kids to hold their scissors steady, wherever it is comfortable for them.

When the line they’re cutting curves or movers their scissors stay steady. Instead, encourage them to move the paper. They can use their free hand to turn the paper instead of awkwardly moving their cutting hand! this idea takes a bit of practice but is a great way to frame “how to cut.”
