Valentine's Day Scissor Skills Projects

This is a great Valentine's Day project to use when you are first introducing a child to scissors.  It requires single "snips" only.  Before starting the project, show the children how to hold scissors and talk to them about using scissors safely:

Although it's difficult to hurt yourself with children's safety scissors, preschoolers should practice safe scissor habits from the very first time they get the privilege of using them!

You can make this craft 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)
