My husband and I have a lot of teacher friends, and one of the biggest complaints we hear about kids going into Kindergarten is not that they don't know their letters, it's that they don't know how to use scissors. This activity gives kids a chance to practice their cutting skills without the hassle of paper or strict lines and all you need is a pair of kid-safe scissors, a large bowl, and some flowers.
The kids loved cutting up any flowers they could find. We started with the wilted calla lilies, then moved on to the hydrangea and a few from our flower pots.
