Making a Crown

What could be better than making your own crown, it's fun to make and even better to play with.

Building Coordination and Imaginative Play

Using scissors is really important as it helps develop hand-eye coordination where they learn to watch where they are cutting and use their eyes to guide how they should move next. Mastering this skill is helpful in playing sports, cooking and everyday life.  There are lots more benefits that you can find here
