Cutting with scissors is hard!

During a cutting activity, Gio struggles to find an effective hand position for holding his scissors. Cutting with scissors is actually quite a complex skill, involving fine-motor control, spatial awareness and hand-eye coordination. As a result, toddlers usually find cutting too challenging, and will often resort to tearing the paper instead. The good news is that tearing paper is excellent preparation for learning to cut!
