Kids will love these Thanksgiving themed free printable scissor practice skills. I needed to make strips that ranged between easy (thicker lines to cut) to a bit more challenging lines and thickness. Preschoolers will love to pretend play as they cut their turkey strips. These would make a great addition to an easy cutting worksheets independent tub.

Easy Cutting Worksheets
There are so many scissor and cutting worksheets available on the internet. I find that I continuously need cutting sheets or cards that are easier for kids to see the lines to cut.
Some children are still working on holding the scissors, so it’s essential we don’t make it more difficult for them to learn how to use the scissors.
These super easy cutting cards feature cutting lines that progress from easy to harder more curved lines.
The child will use these to practice the skill of using scissors by cutting them into smaller pieces.
These Thanksgiving themed cutting strips are pre-made, so print them out, add them to your jar of cutting strips along with some scissors and you’re done!
Cutting practice for preschoolers
These cutting strips would make a great addition to your rotations at preschool.
Kids need a lot of scissor skills before they’re able to hold a pencil or even use markers.
How to use these cutting strips
First, I would print out the pumpkin strips and then instruct the students that they will. Need to carve their pumpkins this morning.
They will then pick a strip (again, choose the set that is easiest to begin with) and then they will follow the line to cut the strip. They continue this until all the strips are cut.
