Bird Scissor Activities
We've got lots of lovely cutting practice worksheets here for the kids to enjoy, on a bird theme.

This scissor skills worksheet is the second of 3 owls, and the difficulty has increased! Cutting the scallops for his feathers will take some careful cutting. When the kids have cut out his shape, they can trace his eyes and beak and colour him in.
Here is our third cutting shapes owl worksheet. It is still a relatively simple shape for the kids to cut out, but they will need to go very carefully around the ears. Trace the eyes and then colour the body in and put your owl out on display...
Here's a lovely easy bird shape for the kids to practice their cutting skills on. It's even more fun if you print the page onto coloured paper or card! When the outline has been cut out, punch out the eye or glue on a button...
