Pre Handwriting skills activities

This school holiday, i would like to work on Sonshine's fine motor skills. His pencil grip is still not strong but improving. To help him brush it up, these are some activities we will be doing this week:

Learning to sharpen a pencil. This intrigues him for some reason.

Using a scissors- cutting straight line. This he can't do very well. I am not sure if the problem lies with the scissors 'cause it isn't very sharp- even i have trouble cutting with it!

Using a scissors- cutting zig zag line. Obviously, this was challenging for him too.

Tracing with a stencil. He had to learn to press & hold the stencil firmly on the paper such that it won't move as he traced.


  1. Good hand eyes coordination practice!^^

  2. This type of scissors is hard to use which often frustrate the kids, though they are supposedly safer. It is more effective to use small metal scissors. Just make sure you supervise when he is using them. You can buy them from Popular.

  3. Thanks for the tip! I realized that, bought him a proper scissors. Now he can cut better! Silly me!
