The Super Scissors Book

Thirteen projects, two pairs of kid-friendly scissors (one straight, one jagged), and a craft book that's colorful and easy to use...what's not to like? Working with scissors is a key kindergarten skill, because it builds the small muscles of the hands and prepares them for writing. This book makes practicing feel anything but dry. From giving a cartoon a crazy haircut, to snipping out finger puppets or snake spirals, kids get plenty of chances to wreak scissor havoc with this set of kooky projects. The best news? You don't need a single craft supply to get started! Because everything kids need is included, this packs up perfectly for creative distraction during a last minute vacation or a long Christmas dinner. (Klutz, $12.95)
