Cut and paste activities for preschoolers help to build fine motor skills. Scissor skills are an important skill for young learners.
As I began my search for preschool cut and paste pages, I had a hard time finding a cut and paste activity that was simple for young children and beginning scissor skills. So I decided to design and fun craft with straight lines that are a simple cut. I hope the designs on these free printable worksheets, interest your preschooler and are the perfect way to encourage practice with scissors.
