It’s always exciting to watch your child’s milestones as they leap to the next stage. But what’s even more exciting is that developing fine motor skills is closely related to brain development.
Practicing scissor skills is one of the best ways to develop your child’s motor skills, and what could be more exciting to a toddler than the chance to use a tool they’ve never tried before?
Here are some fun worksheets your little ones can use to practice their scissor skills. Let your child have fun coloring and cutting the different shapes and lines to fine-tune their motor skills.
How to teach a young child to use scissors
