Kids love to cut with scissors—as you can see by the trail of scraps often left in their wake! This creative and practical activity pad gives an engaging, creative direction to scissor work, meaning more concentration and less mess. Organized from simpler to more complex, 20 different paper-cutting projects (with complete supplies included right in the pages of the book) allow children to practice slightly different skills and techniques and produce 20 distinct crafts, games, and activities that offer them a creative focus and a sense of accomplishment. Plastic safety scissors are included, which naturally encourage proper form and are safe for preschoolers—but any pair of scissors can be used to complete the paper-cutting projects. The included safety scissors are child-safe, easy to use, and can be used by right- or left-handed kids. Our scissor skills activity set for kids assists in the development of fine motor skills and cognitive skills. The inclusion of mazes, puzzles, animal art, sequencing activities, and much more stimulates creativity. This child-safe scissors activity set is a great gift for kids ages 4 to 7.
