Did you know that cutting is a great way to improve hand muscles, bilateral coordination skills, visual motor skills, and fine motor skills?
It also helps promote a grasp pattern and focus and attention. Cutting is an independent movement of each finger and requires a lot of dexterity.
This makes it a great activity for improving visual perceptual tasks as well.
By stimulating your child's hand-eye coordination, cutting well-using scissors helps develop your child's motor control and fine motor skills.
They are using muscles they haven't used before, so it will take some time and lots of practice to use them successfully.
Be patient and encouraging as you assist them practice using scissors.
Look for some fine motor activities here.
