Why are scissor skills important for preschoolers?

Cutting gives young children independent movements of each finger.

Cutting with scissors works on the separation of two sides of the hand and strengthens those tiny hand muscles.

Bilateral coordination is also addressed when they have to hold the scissors in one hand and paper in the other.

Having to cut out specific shapes and lines helps with hand-eye coordination and the act of cutting with scissors prepares them for handwriting and using a pencil.
