Whenever I am clipping coupons or cutting stuff, my toddler is always curious and sometimes want to use the scissors. So I got her some scissors by Melissa & Doug to practice cutting paper. According to the description on the website, they are child safe. Find the link here at Amazon.
She loves using them. We have showed her and helped her cut. But they tend to frustrate her when she cannot manipulate them well. So I have put them a way for a little while.
