The other day, I decided to give Soren a pair of scissors and let him go to work on a large piece of paper.
Why are you so happy, mama?Now before any of you go calling children and youth services over those non-safety scissors, let me be frank. I hate those things! As an art teacher, I've seen more accidents with those because those buggers just don't cut anything, leading kids to squeeze them harder and take more risks. So with proper supervision, I recommend using a small pair of "real" scissors.
We then broke out the glue stick for more fun.
Now if only his love of scissors would translate into letting me cut his hair without complaint and without the avoidance ninja moves. He's currently living with an unfinished cut, where I was able to trim all but the top of his head due to his freaking out over the hair clippers. I hope to catch and trim that rooster plume one of these days. Man, I wish my hair grew so fast!
