To do: Place a scissors and snipping paper in a basket or tray for your child to use.
Time: 15 minutes
Materials: Basket or tray, children’s scissors, scrap paper
When your child knows how to safely and appropriately handle scissors, create a place for them to cut paper whenever they would like!
Find a small basket. Inside, place a few pieces of scrap paper and a scissors. Invite your child to use anytime, and save the scraps for a collage when they’re finished.
A tray with raised edges will work for this as well. Rotate out color and style of paper to hold your child’s interest.
Lastly, we like this idea from No Time For Flashcards for a bowl with scissors attached!
