Do you love kid activities that keeps them so busy and concentrated they can’t hear your voice calling them a million times in midst of absolute silence? I do! And this Ribbon Cutting Tray is just that!
It’s easy to set-up. All you need is a couple kid-safe scissors and a bunch of ribbon (I’ve used all sorts of ribbons I’ve found around the house!). Activities like this are my favorite. I simply use what ever I have on hand! I’ve had several odd lengths of ribbon and string I’ve had laying around the house. And this activity was perfect to use up those scraps.

Place all sorts of ribbons onto a tray (or use a separated “tray” as I’ve used) and place a couple kid-safe scissors. Annnddddd that’s it!
What is my child learning and improving?
-Fine/small motor skills (holding the scissors with thumb and pointer finger helps improve and strengthen)
-Cutting (using scissors to cut the ribbons helps work on scissor skills)
-Textures (your child will familiarize with different textures, colors and weights)
-Focus/concentration (this activity is great for independent work and for quite times)
