I bought these fantastic scissor grip scoops recently and thought they would be wonderful to teach and reinforce correct scissor grip and could be used with pom poms, bottle tops, rice, peas, sand- really anything!!! Recently, I used them in the water trolley with ping pong balls for a fun fine motor and number recognition activity.
Here are the scoops!!
I wrote the numbers 1-10 on ping pong balls.
I also wrote the numbers 1-10 on plastic cups and tied them together with string.
The children tried to pick up the balls with the scissor scoops and then put them in corresponding cups.
Tip them out and start again...
The children absolutely loved this activity - you should try it!!
