Products That Help: Rock? Paper? No, Scissors!

Am I really going to write an entire post about scissors?

Yes!

When I use scissors, I use these...


They are by Fiskars and they are spring-loaded!  No hand cramps. No fatigue.
The orange deallymabopper is a safety-lock to keep them closed when not in use.

They do make smaller, kid-friendly sizes, but I like my kiddos to use regular scissors.

And boy, have we tried scissors.

Plastic handled, rubber covered, blunt tip, sharp tip.

You name it, we've tried and we have most of the pairs we have purchased over the years.

Although, there must be some weird vortex in my house that sucks up--
rulers, scissors, and socks.
But, only the left ones.  What's up with that?

(Bonus points if you know what movie I just quoted from. ABBY do not help them and please go do some math).

Oh.dear. Where was I?

Oh yes, scissors for the wee little ones.

I bought these ones for only one reason--

they were green.

Apparently with all the school supply shopping I have done over the years, our house was over run with pink and purple scissors.

To help preserve his manhood, I purchased "Special" scissors for the little man.



Aren't they cute??!! Shhh... don't tell him I think he scissors are cute.  I meant to say...
they are COOL!  Yes, that's what I meant ;)


These scissors work so great that I often go looking for them if I only need to cut a little bit.

The girls will gravitate towards them as well.

But, there is no mistaking the rightful owner because these come with a handy-dandy name tag...









We purchased ours at the Container Store but I don't think they have them any more.

I did locate them for the same price (I think??)
It was a stocking stuffer so I splurged ;)

They also have cat, dog, zebra, giraffe, duck, lady bug, 
robot, rocket, penguin, polka dot, and garden scene scissors :)









But we just can't seem to get away from frogs, can we?

Hah! You crack me up!

And I know what you mean about the frogs. They keep appearing over here too and I can't figure out why.

Cool, not cute :) Aren't boys funny?!? My daughter sees those itty bitty cucumbers in the grocery store and says they are cute. My son picks out the biggest one and says, well, this is not a cute cucumber, it's a mancumber...BOYS...gotta love em!
