One of our “learning bags” is dedicated to the skill of cutting! This is an easy way to practice!
Scissor Skills Busy Bag
- Old magazines or paper
- Plastic box or plastic bag
1) Cut 1/2 to 1 inch strips from the pages of a magazine or other used paper.
2) Show your child how to cut these strips into small pieces. Allow them to practice!
I store the scraps in a plastic shoebox. After they can easily cut across the strips, make thicker strips or have them cut around pictures/items in a magazine or grocery ad.
