by Kremy

Kids love Halloween! Especially the little ones who want to participate too! So why not take advantage of this by giving them the opportunity to learn something at the same time? And speaking of learning, cutting is among the most important activities for children aged 3 to 5 who are developing their fine motor skills. Suggesting Halloween cutting activities is undoubtedly a project that they will be eager to start!

Why Is Cutting Such an Important Activity?

For young parents, scissors are often an object that they find very dangerous for children aged 2 to 5 years old. However, it is an item that is extremely important for the development of the child at this specific age. Cutting helps develop fine motor skills and what’s more, children love it because by cutting, they feel big and special: they are able to change the nature of an object by transforming it! And that is like magic to them! In addition, scientific studies show that this ability is also crucial to a child’s academic success, their ability to write and learn.

  • Cutting helps train the child’s fine motor skills, which on the other hand is an essential skill that we use constantly in our daily lives: to get dressed, to put on our shoes or even to brush our teeth, etc.
  • While cutting, children develop their hand-eye coordination by doing several things at once: they have to hold the scissors, squeeze them and move them at the same time, which is not always easy for them.
  • Children develop their mastery of scissors and their ability to manipulate them.

This is a Halloween cutting activity that you can do once the party is over, even with the little ones! You will definitely have balloons left over from Halloween: don’t give them to the child and instead let him try to catch their strings coming from the ceiling. Make a mark at the end of the string and tell your child they can cut up to that mark. Then, let him have fun by cutting the balloon string into tiny pieces. You can also draw several small marks on the balloon string and ask the child to cut out the lines. But remember to use a different color for the last mark above which the child cannot cut!

Remember to do everything you can to encourage your child to have fun! Halloween is one of children’s favorite holidays and we can very well use this to give them little DIY projects that allow them to learn at the same time! And that’s also exactly what Halloween cutting activities do!
