[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Here are 5 ways to help children learn how to use scissors and to make cutting a little bit easier.
1. Use thicker paper when cutting. Recycled mail, greeting cards or playing cards are fun and easier to cut up than regular paper. Make it functional and the children can cut up junk mail to recycle it. Cut up greeting cards to make a simple puzzle.
2. Use smaller paper. Start out with paper that is not very wide. Index cards are nice because it is small and thick paper. Here are some printable cutting strips that children can start with that only require a few inches of cutting – http://yourtherapysource.com/freecuttingstrips.html
