Cut it out with Scissors
Children are always eager to try new tools. Scissors is a tool that helps in development of fine motor skills, focus and concentration.
The opening and closing motion of cutting with scissors helps children develop the small muscles in their hands otherwise known as fine motor skills. These muscles are crucial for holding a pencil or crayons and gripping and manipulating objects.
Cutting with scissors requires the skill of hand separation, which is the ability to use the thumb, index, and middle fingers separately from the pinkie and ring fingers.
Children’s little hands can develop fine motor skills by learning the proper way to cut paper.
This can be challenging for a youngster with small hands.
