Weekly Unplugged Project : Scissors



This week's Unplugged Project topic is scissors. We have missed quite a few weeks so I wanted to jump back in even if I was feeling less than inspired today.

I drew shapes on paper and asked my kids (2 and 5) to cut on the lines as best they could. I thought this was a good chance to get an idea of where their scissor skills are and help them as I could. My 5 year old did pretty well, and I had a chance to sit down with my 2 year old and give him some pointers. His cutting actually drastically improved in just a few minutes, with a couple of tips.

So I was pretty happy - we were amused for a while and some of us even learned some new things!

I am so glad you are back with us this week! I need to sit my 2 year-old down with some scissors and see what she can do too. Great idea!

My daughter is 3 and had loved her scissors for quite some time - it doesn't matter at all what she's cutting. You could give your 2 year old some paper and just let him snip! Just make sure you let him know what is and isn't ok to cut - don't want to lose any important papers! :)
