Hot Air Balloon 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. Children can spend a long time filling in the entire shape or can decide to make a quicker project by just pasting in a few pieces -- whatever inspires them!

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).

You can read a bit about hot air ballooning on our blog. We went and had a wonderful time (despite my fear of heights, hehe), though with small children I would just stay on the ground with a little picnic and watch the balloons blow up and float away!
