Scissor Skills Bat

Thanks to Kailey for making this bat....

Scissor Skills Pumpkin

...and to Sierra for sharing her pumpkin

This is a great project to use when you are first introducing a child to scissors.  It requires single "snips" only.

We did a project like this with our three year old friend when we were babysitting -- he had lots of fun -- it was cute how hard he concentrated on his scissors.

You can make this appropriate for older children (kindergarten and up) by asking them to fill their templates with a particular type of shape (squares, rectangles, triangles, polygons, etc).
