We have been doing lots of tearing and snipping of cardboard with scissors to prepare children for cutting. Some of our children are starting to cut. If you allow your child to do this at home and you notice their elbow raising, encourage them to hold a folder or magazine under their arm to encourage the correct position. Don’t worry if they are not ready for cutting yet. We are encouraging children to use tweezers, kitchen tongs, squeezing play dough and using squeeze bottles to improve their fine motor skills.
