Free butterfly cutting strips

The days are starting to get longer! You guuyys the days are finally starting to get longer, and warmer, and there are birds! I'm so, so excited for spring and slightly less bone chillingly cold here in the Netherlands! 

Of course, all of this excitement means it's time to get some spring themed activities on the shelves! So today, I am sharing a new freebie that is making its way onto our spring themed shelves rotation - Butterfly themed cutting strips! 

I am so pleased with how these turned out, I must admit. These realistic butterflies are just so fun with their pretty colours!

Montessori Printables: 

Butterfly cutting strips

Age: 2+
Includes: 5 strips to practice cutting 
Why: Practice scissor skills, using proper and safe grasp while neatly cutting along the dashed line. 

Toddlers and children learning to use scissors, first learn to 'snip' paper rather than cut along a longer line. These printables are perfect for children learning to snip or transitioning to cutting along lines. 

Strips such as these provide opportunities for working on scissor grasp with a visually appealing pattern.

Note: When presenting cutting strips, be sure to provide a bowl or plate for your child to place the cut pieces.
