Scissor Skills Sensory Bin
Implementing sensory bins in the classroom doesn't have to be a ton of hard work and cost a lot of money. I put this sensory bin together in my special education classroom for exactly $0. I used it with my students who are working on scissor skills. They were able to snip the paper, sort it by color, and do so many different things. Of course, students should be supervised when using scissors, but there are all kinds of fun things you can do with this bin that don't involve scissors! #sensorybin
10 Activities For Building Scissor Skills
Being able to use scissors is not just a milestone that turns your child into a potential hair dresser- it’s a developmentally important step in enhancing hand eye coordination, bulking up the muscles in their hand and also encourages bilateral coordination (using both sides of your body simultaneously). So grab a pair of training scissors and start building serious scissor skills in your toddler with these crafts!
