Cutting Felt

Bubble loves fine motor activities like cutting and drawing, but finds them a bit tricky. To encourage her to develop her skills we give her lots of different textures and mediums to work with, like these felt offcuts for practicing her cutting skills. It's not only nice to cut but requires different pressure and technique than those used for cutting paper, and Bubble liked creating her own little picure from something a bit different. We also vary the types of scissors available to use, giving her a chance to try out different sizes, styles and handle shapes.
