Tot Scissors That Won't Cut Hair

5

Letting toddlers play with scissors is great for their fine motor skill development, but not without possible side effects like self-hair cuts, destroyed curtains and clothes, and endless other experiments with the sharp cutters.

Many moms love the safety scissors designed to cut only paper -- no hair, clothes or anything else. One of several brands available is pictured here.

My neices daughter cut her own, very beautiful hair and her sister's too!

I let kids use scissors at about 2-3yrs old.  But only w/ supervision.

I'm getting dd a pair of these scissors for Christmas--i haven't let her use scissors yet, but she's showing interest, so i think a plastic pair that only cuts paper is good.

This was written one week too late for us :(  My daughter has the children's safety scissors that she uses when we work on her scrapbook but my husband went and got his hair cut last weekend and my daughter decided that if Daddy got a hair cut, she wanted one too.  So she got a hold of the scissors and took a couple chunks off her hair before I noticed.  Thankfully no one else can tell!!

My dd cut her hair and then a month or so later cut her sisters hair.  Luckily you can't really tell on her sister, but she had to get a pixie cut.
