Rainbow Scissors Skills for Kids

We LOVE practicing our scissor skills and this activity is one of the most fun and easy ways for kids to develop their fine motor and scissor snipping accuracy. You will only need some colored paper, a glue stick and a marker pen for this activity. And, if you don’t have time to put one of these rainbows together for yourself, scroll down for my free printable version.


This is what you will need:

Colored construction paper

White printer paper


Black marker pen


This is what you will need to do:

1. Cut a cloud shape from a piece of white paper. Cut strips of colored construction paper and attach them to the back of the cloud. You can use a glue stick or tape to attach your colored strips.


2. Take your marker pen and add some different line patterns to each strip of paper.


3. Take your scissors and carefully snip along the lines on the colored strips.

!WARNING! Remember that scissors are sharp. Always be very careful when using scissors and remember that adult supervision is always required when children are using scissors!
