PARENTS: Practice cutting shapes out with your child at home, use newspaper, scrap-papers…anything! Practicing cutting helps to develop eye-hand coordination and fine-motor skills!!! It will help build confidence when they can proudly show their classmates how great they are at cutting circles, triangles, squares etc… during art projects!!
