Cutting with Scissors
We call this: cutting with scissors. While cute craft projects are fun, super simple art activities work great for young children.
I took a catalog out of the recycle bin, tore out a page for each kid and they just...cut. It was fun. We discussed the rules for using scissors - only on paper, only when sitting down.
The kids practiced small motor skills. I got a chance to encourage their perseverance. We didn't create anything but that's okay, this activity was about process not product.
