DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Owl Scissor Skills Craft

contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a great project to use when you are first introducing a child to scissors.  It requires single "snips" only.

My 11 year old made this one.  She ripped the paper instead of using scissors and used multiple colours to give the picture a more 'feathery' look.  She figured she didn't need scissors practice and wanted to exercise her creativity *chuckles*.

You can make this appropriate for older children (kindergarten and up) by asking them to fill their templates with a particular type of shape (squares, rectangles, triangles, polygons, etc).
