I often think folks don't put enough emphasis on the importance of learning to use scissors correctly. Scissor skills are not just for cutting things out, this activity develops important fine motor control.
I use Kumon books for cutting pages, but you could draw something for your child or even have them cut out pictures in magazines or catalogs.
