Crayola Safety Scissors
Advantages: Good safety scissors
Our little lad loves to do his arts and crafts and a lot of this involves him using scissors and glue and other things that both me and his mum just do not feel comfortable about letting him use on his own. He is now in the process of making his own Christmas cards for friends and family and as he started about two days ago we know this will continue through for the next couple of weeks - every night after he gets in from school he settles himself down at the dining room table and takes over from where he left off the night before - he has so far made only one card for his aunty and uncle and it will be a long slow process but with a bit of help he will get there.
For this reason we decided to buy his own safety scissors from Crayola. I paid £1.09 for two pairs of scissors from Poundstretcher. They are held together in one of those difficult to open cardboard and toughened plastic jobs. One pair of scissors are purple and have the 'zigzag' effect at cutting and the other pair are in red and do straight cuts.
What I personally like about these child friendly scissors s that they are absolutely safe for him to use and we do not feel like he needs to be supervised whilst he is cutting out. The scissors will not cut anything but paper or cardboard and will certainly not cut his fingers or skin.
They are a nice shape, quite 'fat' and a good size for little hands and fingers to be able to manipulate properly. It makes him feel much more grown up when he uses these, as he doesn't feel like he constantly has to ask for help from either of us.
They are suitable for children aged from three years and upwards and are nicely tapered at the ends and not at all sharp or lethal looking. They work very effectively and cut card and paper very effectively. He particularly likes the jagged scissors as he is using these to make outlines for most of his cards.
There are other Crayola scissors you can buy from this range but we thought that for the two pairs this seemed really good value for money as well as peace of mind.
