A much loved fine motor activity among preschoolers is the use of scissors.  I try to make scissors and paper readily available for my littles because fine motor skills are so.very.important-- especially in this crazy technology age that we are in.  Many more kids know how to "swipe" more than properly use scissors!

Practice proper scissor use with this simple Christmas themed cutting activity.

Your preschooler will love creating a Christmas wreath in the process.

How to Make a Paper Plate Wreath Craft

Prep the activity by cutting a circle out of the center of the green paper plate so that it resembles a wreath.  ** Alternatively, you could use a white paper plate and have your child color it green with markers, paint, do-a dot markers, bleeding tissue paper, etc!

Encourage your child to use the scissors to make small snips around that paper plate.

Make sure they do not cut all the way to the circle!
