Red Ted's Scissors

Aaaaah, bless, Red Ted is growing up!!! He has just received his very own first pair of scissors (Early Learning Centre, 80p)! We decided he “needed a pair” after he went round the whole house naming all sharp implements according to who they belong to (usually “Mummy’s”). So now we have “Red Ted’s or “My”… Red Ted got very excited and and started to “cut” away. Well, he does need some help still and a little bit of practice. But still. Happy boy he is!

Do get crafty with your little ones and don’t hold back! They have to learn sometime… 😉

    😉 they are “safety” scissors. He can’t hurt himself with them.. and can teach him to be resonsible (e.g. he tried sticking them in his mouth -not actually dangerous, but I “pretended” that it was like with normal scissors).

    Hi, ah great post, I agree – I think it’s a good thing (although our wipe-down tablecloth still bears the wound marks from my toddler’s experiments with the scissors!) But how dull if we all abided by the endearing words – “and get a grown-up to help you with this bit” – as heard on Blue Peter in the seventies . . .do they still say that these days?

    keep up the good work, get crafty! x


  4. I did glueing the little paper balls from holepuncher!
    Had “confetti” in the living room carpet for a while, but so much fun!
    she loved!
    scissors are a great idea! thanks!
