Lately, Mr. Q has been working on his scissors skills. He has had so much fun ripping, snipping, and cutting, all the while leaving a trail of paper behind him.

For ours, I accidently picked up one-sided contact paper so I had to use a heavy-duty tape to attach it to our screen door.

How to Use a Sticky Window Mural to Work on Scissor Skills

Since this was the first time we have ever played with contact paper, I set out our creation tray with a handful of random small parts such as buttons and pom-poms in addition to the paper so that the kids could fully explore how the sticky wall worked. It didn’t take long for them to dive in and start playing.

Mr. Q had a blast pressing on the various colored papers and then peeling them off, watching the colors rip and stick.

The packet of tissue paper we used for this activity came pre-cut into small squares which I was not too fond of.

But, Q still had a blast with this simple scissor skills activity. Earlier in the week he had seen me working on a seating chart which he quickly began to copy.
