Scissor Skills Pumpkin
Hi folks. I have been busy recently planning for our mini classes next half term and I have come across so many fantastic ideas that it seems a shame to keep them to myself! I am going to try to use this blog to share at least one great arty, crafty activity each week that you can try at home with your little ones. If you make something great or just have a lot of fun doing it (that’s the main aim at the end of the day) the it would be great to see the results. You can share them to our facebook page or comment below and maybe let us know what worked well (and what didn’t!). The aim is to get a little community of like-minded parents and carers sharing hints and tips and getting creative.
So, as Halloween is just around the corner, it seems fitting that the first offering is pumpkin based! This is a great activity for developing your little one’s scissor skills. People are sometimes surprised that we have ‘real’ scissors at our mini classes but learning to use scissors safely is an important skill. It is also fabulous for developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. All you need for this one is some green and orange paper, scissors, pen, ruler and a couple of split pins. Make lots in different sizes and use them to get your house ready for the 31st. Let me know how you get on!
