Cutting Long Legs

You will need:

  • Scissors (I like Fiskars best..available for purchase at MissMancy’s AMAZON Shop)
  • Heavy stock paper or construction paper
  • Markers or crayons

The Activity:

Here is a really fun way to get ANY child to enjoy cutting. First I draw the face of their favorite character at the top of an 8×3 inch piece of construction paper. I then draw 2 long legs and color the middle yellow.

I then ask the child to cut by staying on yellow so as to create 2 legs for their favorite character! Tada! Simple but fun way to teach early cutting skills.

Note: If you are not artistically inclined, find small characters in coloring books to complete this activity.
