Christmas Fine Motor Skills Cutting Practice
Quick and easy Christmas Fine Motor Skills set up with recycled cards! This is so SIMPLE. All you need is a handful of old holiday cards (or any cards!) and a pair of scissors. We love fun cutting skills trays with new materials.
Looking through stacks of cards, I thought they would be great for something. Home made puzzles! I precut the puzzles with different piece sizes and shapes and amounts. A more advanced child can cut his own puzzles. I made one for each part of the tray! He loves his tray and being able to pick which one he wants to do next. In the center, I placed some gift bag tags and a pair of scissors for him to make his own puzzles. (Great for multiple ages and skills!) I love finding ways to use what we have! This was our first Christmas fine motor skills tray and it was so fun and easy!
He practiced cutting them into four pieces each and putting them back together. This is a unique way to work on puzzle skills for Liam because he doesn’t generally enjoy boxed puzzles!Liam does a great job cutting when I encourage him to slow down and and make complete cuts!
