Cutting Race Activity

Lately it has been hard keeping my 3 year old focused on a task. His cutting skills could use improvement and it is also an activity he thoroughly enjoys. I came up with a small activity to help with his hand eye coordination and keep him engaged on the task.



  • Paper
  • Marker
  • Ruler
  • Child Scissor


Use a ruler to draw lines across paper. Most important to write start and finish. Making this a game or a race was the key to get my child following directions. I made each paper a little harder and called each one a level. When we were done he asked for the next level as he really enjoyed this and it was so easy to do and set up.
