Fine Motor Skills - Practice with Scissors

My son loves scissors. He loves cutting paper.
See that look of concentration on his face!?

Whenever we get the chance, I pull out some old recycling papers and his little scissors and let him cut until his hand is too tired to cut any more. Then we switch hands...

Although he is definitely right handed, we practice cutting with his left hand as well to strengthen all those little muscles in both hands.

This exercise helps develop fine motor skills, works his eye-hand coordination and gives my son confidence in his own abilities.

Happy Cutting!
