Our Favourite Things: Scissor Skills

It’s Cyber Monday! To celebrate and help parents, caregivers and family members with Christmas Shopping we will be posting some of favourite toys, games, and equipment that we use and love at OuTcomes Therapy. Our chosen items are not only fun and engaging but they also invite skill development. A win-win for all!

Scissoring is a wonderful 2-handed activity that allows children to use a tool, develop their hand strength and refine their visual motor skills. For some children, it can be a difficult skill to master. To help, there are a variety of activities and games to play. Two of our favourites at OuTcomes Therapy are:

1. Willy’s Wiggly Web – http://amzn.to/2A8azLc – which is great game to play simply to practice holding scissors correctly and snipping.

2. Kumon’s My First Book of Cutting – Which has a number of graded activities to develop scissoring skills – http://amzn.to/2zud0EH

Happy cutting!
