Yes this is my wee man using scissors all on his own. It's actually a favourite past time and an art that he seems to be perfecting. He insists to do it himself without any assistance as well. Any involvement of help on our part is met with heavy resistance and usually ends in tears.
He likes to cut the paper sometimes into really small pieces getting so close to his fingertips. He knows they are sharp and that they will hurt him. He is certainly not allowed to move freely about with them. He definitely does not intentionally want to cut himself or poke anyone's eyes out but geez my heart. I fought the impulse to grab them away from him for a while. Now I have the mantra "Watch your fingers" which I should probably just put on record.
It's interesting how long this activity can hold his attention as well. Trust me amazing for my wee man. We have always thought that my wee man presented as very orientated towards the arts and I actually now have invested building up a box of arts supplies.
I love seeing the creativity of at Red Ted Art and The Imagination Tree. I have tried to steer the cutting enthusiasm towards grander projects but at the moment though he is happiest with just a huge box of paper and a pair of scissors.
