Scissor skills were one of my favorite things to work on as a pediatric occupational therapist. There are so many fun ways to practice the skill of cutting lines. and the areas that need working on for improved accuracy can vary so mcu from child to child. Lines, paper thickness, and even scissors can be moditfied. Hand strengthening activities can happen. Line difficulty can be graded in intensity. Kids can get excited when they get to cut out a favorite charater or shape. Practice can happen by cutting string, straws, fun paper, play dough, therapy-putty, index cards, tissue paper…and so much more. This was one fun area when it came to tips from the OT!
