Princess Bean is very into her Arts & Crafts. Lately, she loves using her scissors to cut up paper. Her scissoring skills are impressive, but she leaves quite a mess in her wake! Since she loves her crafts so much, I try to provide as much paper as we can,without completely destroying the planet. She is able to use scissors at a much younger age than her brothers were. So we try to encourage her to continue developing her fine motors skills. But, I try to give her paper that can be recycled for other purposes. Currently she is shredding up old fax paper rolls from her Aunt. I have her collect her shreddings into a bag and we are using them for sensory tub activities. The goal is at the end of the month to try using these scraps to make recycled paper. Should be interesting...and messy.
