One evening, my four-year-old decided to build himself a race track out of printer paper sized pieces of cardboard I had saved with no particular purpose in mind. At first, I was simply amazed at how proficient he was at wielding the very large kitchen shears when just a few months ago he could barely even hold children’s scissors properly. Then I was bowled over by what else he had planned.
For the track, we cut strips that were approximately two inches wide and 12 inches long. After he finished setting the track, he took the scissors and started cutting out smaller pieces and assembling them into robots with hats and noses. We used simple PVA glue to stick them together and 3-D sticker eyes from early learning centre. If he lets me, I might string them up and hang them somewhere fun.
