Cutting with scissors requires the skill of hand separation, which is the ability to use the thumb, index, and middle fingers separately from the pinkie and ring fingers.

To help your little one practice their cutting skills, we cut out icicles. Following this, they painted a piece of paper blue and attached their “icicles” to it!
