Do you need something for your preschooler to do outside while you work in the yard? Something that practices fine motor and teaches your child how to use scissors? Then get them to cut the grass! My son was doing this too with his small scissors and using the scissors the correct way. He laid down on his stomach and cut the grass that was poking up through the patio blocks. My daughter insisted on using "adult" scissors which were too big for her hands, so she had to hold the scissors with two hands. Either way, it kept them busy for about 30 minutes while I got a bunch of spring clean up done in the yard. Yay for fun, skill practice and peace and quiet!
