Miss 4 has had a wonderful time cutting these transport themed cutting strips! She started with the easiest ones that only need short straight vertical cuts through and moved onto the cutting strips with longer straight horizontal lines.

Miss 7 enjoyed the pages with shapes and the zigzag lines.

The last page can be used to create some stick puppets. Cut out the different transport pictures and stick to a pop stick or use to create a collage picture. Draw a road and backdrop and glue on the car, truck etc.

These could also be cut out and stuck to blocks to make pretend vehicles.

What is included in this printable:

  • Picture strips - Cut the page apart into strips for your child/students to cut straight through the lines in a small straight cut. These are the easiest cutting pages in the pdf. These little square transport pictures are great for gluing and creating artworks after they have been cut up.

  • Straight line strips - cut along the line

  • Curved lines

  • Zigzag lines

  • Cut out the shapes

  • Transport picture page - cut out and use to make puppets, or a picture.

Tip for beginners:

For those children who are just learning to cut use tape to stick one end of the strips to the table. This makes it easier for little ones to cut as they don't have to worry about holding the strip as well. Instead they can use one hand to hold the end of the paper, while the other hand is cutting with the scissors.
