When a pair of scissors finds itself in a child’s hand, everything changes. The child wants to cut everything he sees into tiny pieces. It’s the same with the punch-hole (I never thought that the leaves in the park could be perforated, too!) With the scissors the child can create new shapes, he can experiment, be an artist. Yet using scissors is a difficult task for little fingers.

handCutting with scissors is a wonderful exercise for the hands – just as using buttons and tying one’s shoes. It is good for the fine motors skills.

KROKOTAK has prepared a few printable sheets so your child can practice cutting out simpler shapes.
