Cutting with scissors is one of the pre-handwriting skills. It gives practice to thumb, fore finger and middle finger. It also strengths the hand muscles. My toddler loves to use scissors. She loved cutting aluminium foil which was a different experience for her.
I cut the foil into thin strips. That is the only set up required for this activity. How easy it is!
After cutting, she was twisting the foil to make shapes with them. She is working on her fine motor skill.
She started making shapes with them. She was wondering why can’t make the foil “duck” stand?
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the texture of the aluminium foil and the sound it made.
This is how the foil had been cut at the end of the activity.
