Learning Basket: Scissor Skills

One of our "learning bags" is dedicated to the skill of cutting!  This is an easy way to practice!

Supplies:
Old magazines or paper 
Scissors
Plastic box or plastic bag


1)  Cut 1/2 to 1 inch strips from the pages of a magazine or other used paper.

2)  Show your child how to cut these strips into small pieces.  Allow them to practice!

I store the scraps in a plastic shoebox.  After they can easily cut across the strips, make thicker strips or have them cut around pictures/items in a magazine or grocery ad.
