Fall is a great time for scissor skills practice. So many great scents and colors to enjoy making fun and colorful crafts and activities. Today I am sharing 10 of my favorite fall scissor skills practice activities.


10 Fall Activities for Scissor Skills Practice with Kids

Hand Print Corn Cob – Craftulate

I love that this one has some great bilateral coordination skills with tracing the hands for this. Plus great scissor skills in cutting their handprints out for this adorable corn cob.

Washi Tape Patterned Pumpkins – I Heart Crafty Things

I have a few rolls of washi tape myself, but nothing for fall yet. This is the perfect fall activity with washi tape. And great scissor skills and eye-hand coordination skills in having to judge how long to cut the tape.

Stuffed Paper Apples – Buggy & Buddy

I have been wanting to share this activity since I saw it. I absolutely love this and we will definitely be making these this year with Ellie. Great scissor practice by cutting out the apple shape. Plus a bonus skill of using a hole-punch and threading yarn. Perfect!
