Hannah still could not use the scissors properly when we arrived in the US about half a year ago. However, she amazed me when she picked up this essential skill almost immediately after starting school.
At home, she uses the same pair of scissors I had gotten for Ethan when he started using the scissors, and she will ALWAYS ask me if she needs to use the “safety scissors”.
I’m so proud of her for mastering this skill, but this would also mean we now have scraps of cut-up paper in all kinds of shapes lying around the house most of the time! 😛
