DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Autumn Scissor Skills Projects

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

Our cousin Sierra (4) did a great job on this leaf and football.

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)
