Scissor Safety

April 2, 2020

Scissor safety first; here are tips that may help:  1). When walking with scissors, aways have the sharp extensions together and pointing down towards floor.  (When you walk with scissors pointed towards your stomach - you may trip and hurt your tummy;  when you walk with scissors pointed up - you may trip and hurt your chin, when you walk with scissors pointed out - you may trip and hurt someone else).  2).  Scissors are NOT a toy - please be careful and serious with their use. That is why we would not swing / twirl scissors around in their handles (they might fly off your finngers and hurt yourself or others).  3). Scissors are an important tool we can use in creating art and in our lives. We never verbally threaten others or chase others with scissors. We do not threaten to cut others hair or their belongings. We do not destroy our home materials for things. We are always kind and use scissors in the helpful way that it was intended.
