Here’s another little activity that keeps V busy while I’m busy in the kitchen: cutting up an old magazine. V loves to cut with scissors. She’ll cut anything you give her. She’s not good at cutting out actual objects but just cuts. And cuts, and cuts. If she has a bowl she’ll cut small pieces to put inside. I try to get her to be more aware of the picture she sees to cut around the perimeter, but for now she doesn’t seem to care. That’s fine. She’s busy and happy.
