Part of Ju's prepping for school is working with his fine motor coordination. He has loved to paint and color since he was 1 and he has been beading with pony beads for the last 4 months. About a year ago, I got him some plastic (yes, even the blades) safety scissors to practice with, but after a few runs, they wouldn't cut anything anymore, so I started letting him use the pink handled kid's scissors that Sheila left here two years ago. Mostly, he would just cut little pieces off the edges of papers and that was interesting for him and I let him make little messes all over. Then they disappeared and he went over a month without cutting anything. This past weekend I bought a new pair of standard kid's school scissors for him and now it seems somewhere in this month of no-cutting-time he has matured to a "cut strait lines through a piece" stage and is now making many paper strips here at my feet.

scissors are so fun for them... its kind of like an activity in and of itself.

My mom just told me a funny story about when I was a kid. I used to like to cut stuff too, and my brother, who is a year and a half younger and would have been really tiny, liked to play with the scissors- but he just made little cuts probably like Ju used to do. He asked me to use them one time and I complained that all he did was "make little wings!"
