|LEARN|mummy scissor cutting practice activity


We've started off our Halloween activities with this rather cute mummy, which uses 'bandages' cut up by T.



You will need
An outline of a person - I used a printable from pickle bums for this as I'm pretty naff at drawing!
Google eyes
Paper
Scissors
Glue stick

T loves using scissors and as a lefty does a great job, I started by showing him what to do and let him cut up the bandages, he then used the glue stick to attach the bandages over the picture.


When he finished, he was going to cut out the mummy, but it was a bit too hard for him so I did it.

It's now pride of place on our window gallery!
