Snips & Cuts

The other day I was at the dollar store and saw scissors... was it time to introduce them???  I snatched four and decided I could always wait for a good opportunity.

Well, this afternoon, much to my chagrin Andy declared he was taking the boys for an outing--- to get their hair cut.  Mohawks, specifically (or as Jenna calls it, a 'Mowhog').  While I am not a fan of the hair style, it's only hair and I think it was time for some male bonding!

The girls were very upset Andy was not taking them with, so I asked Lauren & Hannah if they wanted to do something special.  It was time for scissors!

Hannah held her scissors surprisingly well!
Lauren loved trying to cut snips of paper!
I thank God all the time that He guided me to becoming a pediatric OT- a job I LOVE- and one that continually comes in handy with my kiddos.  Scissors skills were something I use to do all the time with my students, and my girls are mature enough to try it.  My boys?  They're not there yet.
We practiced snipping strips of paper & straws to make Cut Up Junk Soup while I did hand over hand practice to teach them the proper scissors grasp (thumbs up, elbow down, scissors pointed out).

We had fun, and the boys look... ummm.... like boys!
