The OT Toolbox: Scissor Skills

As an occupational therapist, working on scissor skills with kids is one of my favorite goal areas.  There are so many ways to get creative with modifications to paper, lines, and scissors.  The fine motor activities that work on the muscles and dexterity needed for scissor use are fun, too.  Stop back soon as we add new activities all the time.  You'll want to follow along on our Scissor Skills Pinterest board for more scissor activities for kids.
