Using Scissors

We transformed our nature table into a temporary cutting station. We noticed the children's interest in using scissors about the same time we realized many of our young ones didn't know how to hold them much less cut with them.   
We set this up and invited the children to cut to their hearts content. The table was supplied with different thicknesses of paper, foil, yarn and plastic straws. 
This activity allowed the children to use their hand muscles while practicing fine motor skills.
