We've cut three rectangles out of our autumn picture. Can the kids cut out the smaller rectangles and glue them into the correct spots? Good cutting and sticking and matching practice!
Autumn Scissor Activities
Practice those scissor skills with our fun cutting activities! We've got a selection here for you to choose from, themed for Autumn.
Here are four autumn leaves and an acorn for the kids to cut out. They could use them to decorate an autumn display or to stick to a picture. You could even print the page onto sticker paper so that they can make their own autumn stickers.
Once children have practiced their scissor skills cutting out these British Wildlife cutting shapes they could add the animals to an autumn themed collage.
Although the outline of the acorn on our cutting skills worksheet is simple enough for children to have a go at, it is still instantly recognisable! You could print this page onto light brown paper or card and make an acorn display...
Autumn is the season of falling leaves and bonfires, so I included this cutting shape in our Autumn section - but of course it may be useful for Bonfire Night and Fourth of July too. Print it out onto flam-coloured paper for a fun cutting activity.

This lovely squirrel is sure to be a favourite with the kids, and his simple, square shape and lines make him relatively easy to cut out if you take it slowly. You could print the page on grey or brown paper and then make a display with the squirrels.
This satisfying tractor shape would look great printed out onto red, blue or green card. Once the tractor is cut out, get your child to sign his name and put it on display!
Print out our apple cutting shape printable onto red, green or yellow paper - or onto white, for the kids to colour in once they have cut the apple out. It will take some careful cutting to negotiate the stalk!
It's fun to practice scissor skills with our cutting shapes worksheets. This one features a pear, with a short stalk and separate leaf to cut out.
