Scissor skill is essential not only for cutting papers but other things that need to be cut and it also helps children as they are grow. The importance of scissor skills include:
Enhances eye-hand coordination, which is needed in better vision( processing what is seen)and moving the hand simultaneously to accomplish a task. This means that while using a scissor, two different senses are working or coordinating to achieve something. One is doing the seeing/ watching and the other is doing the feeling/holding.
Cutting encourages your child to use bilateral coordination. This involves the use of both sides of the body at the same time, while each hand is performing its own task. E.g. while cutting, one hand holds the paper and the other does the cutting.
It allows the child to build up the tiny muscles in the palm of their hand, since they have to continuously open and close the hand. These muscles are also used when the child needs to hold onto the toothbrush, spoon or fork, and pull up pants on a daily basis.
