Scissor practice

17 Feb

I think the best way to inspire a child to do scissor practice is to give them something that they normally don’t get to cut and something that has a funny feel or makes sounds as it’s being cut. Here, girls are enjoying cutting party straws of different shapes and sizes – these make a POP sound and fly off!

They also enjoyed cutting up old party balloons and Styrofoam packing peanuts and pizza Styrofoam base – these make crackling noise, awesome!

When there were enough of cut-up straws – play dough came out – (our massive homemade batch of Halloween White-Green- Orange one still going strong, I really like this recipie) and they started making structures with these.
