Build robots, design jerseys, fly a plane to Dublin Airport, drive your car to Galway, make a sandwich and learn how to develop scissor techniques without even noticing! “Scissor Skills” contains 60 A4 photocopiable pages of imaginative and challenging activities to help children to develop hand to eye co-ordination, fine motor skills and scissor control. The varied activities introduce and extend a wide range of cutting skills in a fun and original way. There are also plenty of opportunities for tracing and colouring and even assembling.
For the youngest children, the act of snipping is endlessly fascinating, while older children want to explore the ability to shape and control. These activities are designed to take children from basic chopping to more complex and purposeful cutting and fashioning.
