This hair cutting activity for preschoolers gives kids a chance to put their scissor skills to work while satisfying the curiosity of little ones. Plus this is the perfect use for empty toilet paper rolls.
Hair Cutting Activity for Preschoolers
This is such an easy activity to set up. Chances are you have everything you need to do this with your little ones. I love crafts and activities that I don't have to buy any supplies for! Even the least crafty parents can set this cutting activity up in no time.
Cut small strips into the top of one end of the toilet roll. Make the cuts varying in length to offer some variety on the cuts for your child.
You might want to create a few of these because your kids are going to have so much fun cutting hair!
Offer your child some scissors and invite them to give their new friend a hair cut.
Observe your child doing this, for safety.
This activity is awesome for kids because it gives them a chance to work on their scissors skills while having a good dramatic play session! Harper LOVED this activity and she always asks me if I will save toilet paper rolls for her to do this again.
