We are continuing with this toolkit series today to include a scissor and cutting practice toolkit. Scissor skills and cutting activities involve using fine motor and visual-motor skills plus bilateral coordination. All of these things are important for future reading, writing, and math skills.

Items for the Scissor and Cutting Practice Toolkit

You can certainly add more than what is on this list. I just went around my house and grabbed what I had.

I used the same container I used for the fine motor toolkit with this one. The 3-teared craft box from Sterilite is perfect for this.

My 4-year-old was immediately drawn to this toolkit when she saw me putting it together and asked to use some of the items as soon as I was done taking pictures. She really enjoyed using the paint strips for cutting practice.
