I read that having your children work with clothes pins helps with their scissor skills and since that is one thing that I have been working with Zane on I decide to create this craft.
Creating these lions was so easy even Zarek, at 2 1/2, could help us!
- plate or card stock
- Elmer’s white glue
- craft paper (white, black, light brown) (Cut white eyes, pupils, nose & mouth)
- clothes pins
- markers (Red, Orange, and Yellow)
Step 1: Color the clothes pins with the markers.
Step 2: Color plate (I trimmed ours as the lip didn’t work well with the clothes pins) or circle cut from card stock
Step 3: Glue white of eyes down (Zane went crazy with the glue!
Step 4: Glue pupils down
Step 5: Glue nose down
Step 6: Glue the mouth down
Step 7 : Let your child place the clothes pins around the outside edge like a main.
You can let your child play with this over and over.
This was such a fun project and it was really easy. Plus you can get all these items for $10 or less (You can find clothes pins at the dollar store).
Do you have any other crafts or activities that help your preschooler with their scissor skills?
