A Cutting Puzzle of Pilgrim Children
Cutting Activities for Thanksgiving

Pilgrim Children in the PDF puzzle below.


Cutting is an important fine motor skill that even older children with pervasive developmental disabilities need to develop stronger fine motor skills and hand strength. Cutting activities that are connected to holidays motivate children.

The pdf here has the picture above in tiles that have been shuffled. After the children cut out the tiles, they can reassemble the picture in the correct order. Once they are glued onto construction paper, the children can color the pilgrim children.

This cutting activity is best for children who are having difficulty around corners, but the same children may need support positioning the puzzle pieces in the correct order.
