This Summer Scissor Skills Activity is an awesome way to work and improve scissor skills! It looks colorful, exciting and is totally fun!
I prepped this activity in about 5 minutes and used minimal materials, my favorite part about this! I made it a “summer” theme since it’s summer here, but you can choose simple objects that relate to any theme of course.
My son (2), had a blast cutting away along the dotted line. He did well I must say! Just a bit more hand-eye coordination and finger strength and he will master this hard skill!
Keep reading to see how I’ve made these below, but first take a look at these toddler activities!

Using the pencil draw out summer doodles (we did cloud, starfish, seashell, sun, flower and lemon). Cut them out with the craft scissors. Next, using the permanent marker make a dotted line in various patterns across each doodle and they’re ready to go.
What is my child learning and improving?
- Scissor skills (learning to hold the scissors and open/close them to cut)
- Hand-eye coordination (cutting carefully along the dotted line)
- Fine motor skills (holding the scissors, working on finger strength)
- Focus and concentration
- Independent activity
TIP- you can make this activity even more fun by asking what each picture is, how is it related to summer and what color is it!
