Using the scissors

Learning to use the scissors is in my opinion quite a milestone in terms of fine motor skills. I'm so happy that Alicia has learnt to use the scissors a few days back - the grip and the concept of 'opening' and 'closing' the scissors using her fingers and placing what she wants to cut at the scissors!

Her coordination of placing the item to be cut at the scissors still needs to be improved but she's definitely picked up the raw basics of cutting! :D

I started her on the scissors by getting her to cut the playdoh with the pair of scissors that came along with the playdoh set. Now to progress to a pair of scissors for paper... heh... I've yet to buy it for her though. LOL.








Pegging (Part II)

A week ago, Alicia finally managed to peg properly! :) Though it's still a little tough sometimes to get it right, she has made vast improvement in her fine motor skills (compared to the last time I blogged about her pegging)! Nowadays, she asks to peg every now and then... lol.



Look at her determined little face... LOL
