This one gets them snipping and for those with small attention spans, it's completed in a snap!


Provide a simple cut out of a tree trunk and limbs and have the child glue it to a blank sheet of paper.  Start with a strip of green and have him cut along one side and glue it on as grass. A pair of craft scissors makes cutting a strip of grass a breeze! 

Provide strips of different colored paper in varied widths for him to cut up into pieces.

Glue on the pieces to create beautiful fall foliage!


Call the Zoo Keeper! This activity provides great opportunity for cutting straight lines.

Provide a piece of paper with straight lines approximately 8 inches long and 1 1/2 inches apart.

Have your child cut straight up each line.  Make sure he stops at the end of the line.

Fill in the empty space at the top with the "Zoo".

Cut out every other space.

Add the final touches by placing your favorite animals in the zoo.  Your child can cut them out of a magazine, use stickers or you could have some animals already cut out and he could color them.
