Hula Skirt Cutting Fun!

Pin It Now!
 preschool cutting fun hula skirt.  

I wanted to practice cutting skills with Baby Bear.  I gave her a few options and she wanted to make a hula skirt. This is a really fun activity to practice holding a scissors and cutting in a way that your child can show off their handiwork.  They get to make something that helps to use their imagination and also keep them active by dancing. 

large brown grocery bag
kid friendly scissors ~we opted for metal blades
stapler or velcro for closure

Open the bag at the seam. Cut off the bottom of the bag take off the handles carefully.

  I always start by modeling what I want Baby Bear to do.  Start by showing how to hold the scissors and cut in a straight line.  Next, draw some guidelines for your child to follow leaving 3 inches at the top for the band. 

Once the bag is successfully cut, either staple it on or use the velcro for a reusable closure.  If you want to make it reusable, I suggest reinforcing the top with tape on the inside or by folding it over for structure. 

Find some hula music and DANCE!
