I really like this idea but can't claim it as my own as I first saw it at our local Kindy. I love that it is a fine motor skill and problem solving activity all rolled into one, that you can cater it to a range of skill levels and you could theme it for lots of different occasions.
You will need
Old Greeting Cards (the picture side only)
1. On the back of the greeting card (so picture side down) draw lines for your child to cut along. Cater the lines to your childs skill level straight lines, curved lines or zig zags
2. Ask your child to cut along the lines
Such a simple idea and you are recycling or is the right word repurposing?
