Scissor skills

Not only are scissors a fun and exciting activity for little ones but their little fingers get strengthened as well as gaining hand eye coordination.  Who doesn't love making snow flakes out of paper in the winter time or cutting out different shapes to glue onto a piece of paper?  Using scissors is a skill a child must learn.   Not sure where to start?  Check out Kumons First Book of Cutting for ages 3-4-5.    What I specially like about the Kumon workbooks are that the activities start easy and slowly as your child builds his/her confidence in doing things, the activites get more involved.  Cutting straight lines and then eventually to diagonal lines to wavy lines to circles.  Great confidence booster!
