Fiskars 8 Inch Softgrip Scissors Straight, Stainless Steel

Fiskars make great scissors and I use several pairs from their range for different purposes.

The soft grip makes cutting comfortable, even if there is lots to do.

These are great general purpose scissors.

The long blade makes them great for cutting out strips for paper chains.

Fiskars Pre-School Training Scissors, Color Received May Vary

These Fiskars pre-school training scissors are great for teaching kids how to cut.

They have a lever that opens the scissors automatically so the child can learn the open-close technique of using scissors, once mastered the lever can be flipped up for regular cutting.

Blunt tips and designed to cut only paper for safe learning.

You can't choose your colors but little ones won't really care about the color while they are learning to cut like the big kids.

Darice Paper Edging Scissors, 4-Pack

These Darice paper edging scissors make fancy edging easy.

A set of four scissors with different patterns as seen in the image on the left.

The scissors have the pattern printed on them so you know what the cut will look like.

The cutting edge is metal not plastic so you get a nice clean cut.

I have several pairs of these scissors and find them great for cutting most paper.

Suitable for children over 6 but these are not a toy and should be used with supervision.
