Cut and paste worksheets

What’s inside: Free printable preschool cut and paste worksheets to practice scissor skills.

My preschoolers enjoy any cut and paste activity these days. Whether it’s cutting up old magazines or construction paper for our crafts, they are all about it.

So, to promote this fine motor skill even further, I decided to create these fun cut and paste worksheets.

Preschoolers will enjoy cutting out and pasting animals and pictures they normally encounter in books or see in their favorite shows.

They will be a perfect addition to cutting skills practice in preschool!

Cut and paste worksheet

If your preschooler is just starting out with scissors, you might want to help him with cutting the pieces out of each worksheet. Show him how to hold the scissors correctly and teach him the typical movement “open-close-open-close”.

Then let him find and match the pieces together.

Older preschoolers will be able to finish this activity independently.

My kids usually finish two pages at a time and we leave the rest for another day. See what works best for you and your child.

You may want to use these worksheets during center time in the classroom or as a fun independent activity at home.

And they are so universal, that they can even complement common preschool lessons throughout the year.
