OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
Looking for another way to get your small child interested in snipping with scissors? We've got just the thing! Meet Jack, and he needs a hair cut! All you need for this activity is an empty toilet paper roll, paper, tape, crayons, and most importantly child friendly scissors.
Take the empty toilet paper roll and wrap the top in some paper and tape the paper so it's secure. Next cut small strips in the paper so that the "hair" can hang down. You can chose to decorate a face like I did, or not, that's entirely up to you. Lastly, take a pair of scissors and help our friend Jack out.
Now I used tissue paper here, it's easier to cut and rip for those younger kiddos. But if you have an older kiddo you can easily use construction paper or even cut into the toilet paper roll itself.
Happy snipping! Enjoy!
