Great start for crafts,
This review is from: The Super Scissors Book (Klutz Chicken Socks) (Spiral-bound)
I cannot recommend this product highly enough! My daughter got it aged 3 3/4 yrs and has loved it. She finished the last activity this week 4yrs 5 months and I am amazed at how much her cutting has developed in that time. Because the scissors are "proper" scissors, she has learned how to cut round curves and fiddly small shapes without cutting them away from bigger pieces, (eg ears on a dog puppet, tail on a cat), by stopping cutting half way along the blades. She loved the zigzag scissors and I liked the variety of tasks included, which ranged from very simple straight cutting (paper lanterns) to much more intricate things. It was nice to have the attached case for the scissors, so they didn't get separated from the book. Most tasks required little or no input from me (although I will add she has 4 older sisters so is fairly self reliant.) In fact the only thing she really struggled with was the pieces of tape included on a sheet at the back of the book - even I found them quite tricky to get off the backing until I got the knack of it. She tended to go and find the sticky tape in the kitchen cupboard instead!
