Do you have a preschooler who is working on their skills using scissors? I had one child absolutely determined to learn how to cut because for her it was a sign of being a big kid. As parents and teachers we also know that learning to cut teaches hand eye coordination as well as some basic pre-writing skills (graphing, holding, following lines etc.)
There is one exercise at home that really helped out daughter learn how to cut using scissors. Each Sunday afternoon we look through the coupons and clip them to use for our grocery and other shopping. These are perfect for helping your child learn how to cut too. Those dotted lines around the coupon images help your child learn to cut in a straight line as well as to follow directions. I recommend giving them the sheets of items you don’t plan on buying, that way if the scissors get carried away, it doesn’t matter what happens to the coupons.
My daughters think it’s great fun and it is absolutely helping with cutting skills.
