The importance of this activity
It encourages thinking and imagination, developing precision abilities and developing fine motor skills.
The Facts about this Activity
Working with scissors is a very important activity for the development of precision skills and fine motor skills especially in early childhood. It is important that you encourage your children to engage in this activity.
Fine motor activities are critical to a child’s development. However, it is important to practice different levels of fine motor activity at all ages – to challenge the brain and maintain its health.
Older people who engage in various creative activities – such as assembling objects, sewing and embroidery, painting while observing, and various crafts – also maintain their brain health beyond the enjoyment of the activity itself.
Evidently, fine motor skills are essential for the development of every child – from toddler to adult. Especially today, when children and adults spend many hours as passive spectators in front of the screens – activities such as painting, cutting and pasting, assembling elements, and activities that have order and work stages – are extremely important for the normal development of the brain, and body health in general.
OK, are you ready?
Let’s get started! You can print from here.
Step 1 – Printing your chosen coloring pages
Print the PDF pages with your home printer. Try printing on a slightly thicker paper than the simple printer paper.
We recommend using a 170 gr. paper for best results.
If you do not have a thicker paper, No Worries! A simple printer paper will do the job too!
Step 2 – Coloring and Decorating
Once you have printed the pages, start coloring the pages!
Use markers, pencil paints, or pastel paints. You can also create nice patterns, use your imagination and creativity!
Step 3 – Shearing, Gluing and Assembling
Once everything is decorated, it’s time to cut the items! For best results- please follow the dotted line when using your scissors.
When all parts are ready, glue the parts. Use a stick glue according to the instructions on the page.
Finally, It’s time to play and have lots of fun!
