Using scissors might just mean a way to cut paper for some, but we know that practicing using scissors is really beneficial to kids. That’s why we created these frog cutting practice worksheets!
Kids are able to enhance their hand-eye coordination, grip strength, and bilateral coordination when they cut with scissors. These cutting activities also require concentration and focus, so they also aid in developing attention skills.
These pages are a great way for kids to not only practice using scissors, but also have them counting, matching, and developing fine motor skills.
Kids can learn more about these fascinating amphibians and stay engaged with a fun and beneficial activity when they complete these worksheets!

Frog Scissor Skills Worksheets
In this free printable set, we’ve included the following:
- Cut Along the Line Worksheets (2)
- Finish the Picture Cutting Worksheet
- Counting Worksheet
The cut along the lines worksheets are a great way for kids to practice fine motor skills since the lines get progressively harder as they make their way down the page.
They can get some additional practice by tracing the lines first with a pencil or marker, then cutting along each dashed line to reach the frogs at the end of each one.
The second sheet has a long curvy line that goes from the top to the bottom making its way to the frog. Kids will follow the path to the frog with each snip of the scissors! When kids use their scissors to cut along the lines, they’re gaining coordination, control, and hand strength.
Next up is the matching sheet where kids will match up the bottoms of each frog with its matching top. They’ll use their problem solving and pattern recognition skills to be able to match up the coordinating shapes and colors.
Finally, kids will practice counting and cutting with the number cutting page. Kids will count the amount of frogs in each box, then cut and paste the correct number in the box next to it.
This worksheet is a great way for kids to practice number recognition, counting skills, and fine motor skills.
Each of these cutting activities are a fun and interactive way for kids to practice their scissor skills!
