Prepped and delivered straight to your door, My Pre-K Box is so much fun, your child won't even realize how much they're learning!
Snipping is a single, quick, cutting motion that kids should practice before they learn how to actually cut straight lines. And to improve their scissor skills, we have to expose them to different activities that involve snipping, fringing, and cutting straight and zigzag lines. That is why we created the Witch's Haircut Craft for preschoolers - it is a fun thematic craft for Halloween and is a great way to practice snipping!
Materials for the Witch's Haircut Craft:
- Print & Go Witch's Haircut Craft
- paper or cardstock
Let’s do the Witch's Haircut Craft in 5 easy steps!
Step 1 Download and print our Print & Go Witch's Haircut Craft on white paper or cardstock. You can choose from the black and white or the colored template.
Step 2 Cut out the parts of the witch’s face, hat, and hair. If you chose the black and white version, you can color it before cutting out the parts.
Step 3 Start by completing the witch’s happy face. Glue the eyes, then add the hat on top of its head. Attach the hat band on the witch’s hat too.
Step 4 Arrange the witch’s hair, then add glue on top of it. Attach the witch’s head to it, placing it just along the hat. Add a few more “strands of hair” on the sides. Now the witch is complete and is ready for a nice haircut!
Step 5 Cut the witch’s “hair”! Snip the strips of paper in varying lengths and styles - let your preschooler practice scissor skills and decide what she wants to do with the witch’s hair!

What will your child learn in making the Witch's Haircut Craft?
The Print & Go Witch’s Haircut Craft is created to help preschoolers have fun while practicing snipping. They are new to holding scissors, so it is expected that they cannot cut long, straight lines yet. Instead, they can practice snipping to be familiar with the scissors and how it feels when it cuts the paper. With the Witch’s Haircut Craft, they can practice their scissor skills and create a happy witch! It will also help a lot if you give them more hands-on activities to improve their fine motor skills and practice their hand muscles.
