OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
By the age of 2 your child has the ability to begin to snip with scissors. Snipping is different than cutting, with snipping your child simply has to be able to make a small snip in a piece of paper one time. Where cutting is a more continuous motion.
To help make scissor orientation easier for your young child, I would suggest putting a sticker on the thumb loop side so that your child knows that the sticker should be up! For kiddos who are 2 I would even suggest starting with play doh scissors or even scissor tongs so that there is no stress from a sharp blade. You can easily add stickers to those scissors as well!
