Scissors are required for some activities. Learning to use scissors is an important skill that helps build muscle in the hands which helps with learning to write later. Having good quality, sharp, safety scissors is important in ensuring the activity is enjoyable. If your child is showing signs of left-hand dominance, make a point of getting a pair that is comfortable in both hands or left-hand specific scissors. Fiskars brand is good quality and should last you for years.
