A great way to help kids work on their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills is to get them to use their scissors.
Our bee cutting practice worksheets are a fun way for kids to practice cutting and improve their scissor control.
The hand strength that kids gain when they master using scissors will also help them in other areas of life like grasping a toothbrush, getting dressed, or even eating.
Since developing these skills is so important, we wanted these pages to be a fun and entertaining way for kids to practice cutting with scissors. With this cute bee theme, kids will stay engaged as they go through each task that will have them counting, matching, and mastering those scissors!
These bee worksheets are also a great addition to any bee-themed or insect-themed study, so be sure to grab them to use at home or in the classroom. Keep reading below to see what this free printable set includes.
Keep your busy bees excited to learn with some more bee activities. Bee sure to check them out!

In this free printable set, we’ve included the following:
- Cut Along the Line Worksheets (2)
- Finish the Picture Cutting Worksheet
- Counting Worksheet
On the first sheet, kids will cut along each dotted line to reach the hard-working bee and its honey! The lines get progressively harder as they make their way down the page. Get the kids to practice their fine motor skills as well by having them trace the lines before they cut them.
On the second sheet, there’s a large curvy line for the kids to cut following the path of the buzzing bee. As kids cut along the line, they’re developing their coordination and control of the scissors.
Next up is the matching sheet where kids will cut out the bottom of each image and match it to its corresponding top. This is a great way for kids to use problem-solving and pattern recognition as they match up the shapes.
Finally, kids will get to practice cutting and counting with our number practice cutting page. On this page, kids will count the bee-themed images and then cut and paste the numbers in the correct place. It’s a great way for them to use their fine motor skills and number recognition.
Each of the activities is a fun way for kids to practice their scissor skills!

Spring Books For Kids
Reading books to your kids is an important part of their development. Engaging with books helps to expand their imagination, while teaching them valuable lessons, helping them to learn more about life and the world around them.
Books are generally inexpensive; they are easy to access and don’t require costly digital subscriptions or gaming systems. Children who take pleasure in reading often carry that appreciation for literature into adulthood; this can be extremely beneficial as they continue on their journey through life!
