Learning to Use Scissors
Due to having three kids in the house under 5, and my generally distractable nature, I tend not to let the kids have a lot of scissors practice time! So it was really no shock to me that John Paul is not a natural with the scissors. I found this book at an educational shop (Don't you just love those stores?) and I grabbed it. The book is called My First Book of Cutting by Kumon. I wish I could upload a picture of the book, but that is beyond my technical abilities--for now. It cost around $7--pricey for a book, but it has been REALLY helpful. Each page has a different theme with levels of cutting difficulty that increase very gradually each day. I have John Paul do a page a day to get ready for Kindergarten--so we can do lots of fun crafts without tears and (God forbid) blood. :-) I recommend it!!
