I have to admit challenging myself to do all of the crafts has been so fun. But honestly it hasn’t been without a Pinterest fail. It wasn’t a major fail but it was a funny one for sure. I thought I would save it for the last craft post… a Friday fail if you will.
This craft in my mind was to be the easy one. It was simple. Craft paper and you draw different line shapes to help practice cutting skills. I got my supplies and even ordered a pair of kid safe scissors. We were ready to go.
When we started the activity Tripp was jazzed. I went behind him to help show him how to use the scissors correctly and supervise and he just was not having it. I knew he used scissors at school so I backed off and let him go for it. If you missed the IG stories of this craft check out the video below.
He was messing around and cutting but seemed so awkward and I couldn’t figure it out. I let it go and chalked it up to him just being creative. Literally, every photo his mouth is WIDE open!
We took a left turn
The next day at school I was asking his teacher about methods to help him focus with cutting. She mentioned he does great at school and they even had a pair of left handed scissors for him…. wait WHAT?! Tripp hasn’t show a dominant handedness yet to me… he always switches between left and right. I didn’t even think about scissors. No wonder he was cutting so awkwardly. I was sticking the scissors in the hand he doesn’t know how to cut with.
SO lesson learned right there…. This gave me such a laugh! Sometimes not all actives go smoothly and that’s ok. We will definitely be trying this one again…. with left handed scissors.
Are your kiddos good with scissors? Have you had a Friday Fail before?
