I’ve often felt like I’ve neglected my kids’ scissor cutting skills when they were little. It’s easy to forget about cutting practice for preschoolers, since it’s not like ABC’s or 123’s that are everywhere. Plus sometimes just the thought of handing scissors to a preschooler can be scary! You know?
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be scary anymore. Fiskars knows how important safety and learning is and they’ve created Fiskars Kids Scissors just for young children. Fiskars Preschool Scissors teach little ones how to hold and use scissors with comfy ergonomic designs that put safety first. (Recommended for ages 3+.)
My son, Luke, is 4 and definitely needs cutting practice with scissors as he enters preschool this fall. It was perfect timing that Fiskars sent us a package with different products to try out, including the Fiskars Preschool Scissors.
Luke hasn’t had much cutting practice at all, but he took to the Fiskars Preschool Scissors right away. With a little help from me in figuring out how to hold them properly, he was cutting (almost) like a pro in no time. He hasn’t quite made up his mind whether he’s a righty or lefty, but he was able to use the scissors with both hands fairly easily.
