Shear the Sheep Preschool Scissor Skills


Hello, friends!  It's my favorite {blog} day of the week-- Fine Motor Friday!

Last week we ventured to the ocean and shared a color matching jellyfish, and this week we headed to the farm to shear some sheep!

If you are planning a farm unit for your little one and need a fun scissor skills activity-- I think your little one will enjoy this as much as my daughter did!

My daughter loved this Shear the Sheep Cutting Activity!

Supplies Needed:

To make the sheep body, we used my daughter's handprint.

You could either cut a hand shape out of construction paper or get a little messy and use white paint.

We opted for white paint, and my daughter loved it so much she decided to make three sheep!

The paint wasn't very thick so it dried almost instantly.  

Next, I added the curly ribbon to each sheep.  

I gave Little Sis the scissors and told her to shear their wool.  

"It's hot out in the sun; they need a hair cut!"
{I'm not sure, but I think she rolled her eyes at my attempt at being funny! Ha!}

She adored this activity and had a great time "shearing" the sheeps wool!
