You love to scrapbook and you have younger kids who want to help you make your family scrapbooks. You may be hesitant in letting your younger kids help you when scrapbooking because of some of the cutting that is involved in scrapbooking. There are many scissors that can be used for scrapbooking that are safe for your children to use and will allow them to help you in scrapbooking. Here are some of the best scissors for safe scrapbooking with kids.
When shopping for scrapbooking scissors for your kids to use while scrapbooking you may need to look in office supply stores or school supply aisles. These stores and aisles are more likely to carry kid friendly scissors or safety scissors. One of the best types of scissors you can get for your kids to use in scrapbooking is any blunt tipped scissor. These are the kind of scissors that are most used at school because they do not have a pointed tip and there is less risk of the kids getting poked. These types of blunt tipped scissors can also come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. There are Mickey Mouse shaped scissors and alligator shaped. The scissors can also have different prints on them so that your child can have their own special type of scissors for all their scrapbooking needs. If you have more then one child you should consider buying one of these scissors for each child to cut down on any fighting that can happen.
Another type of good scissors for safe scrapbooking with kids would be some of the decorative scissors. You can buy these decorative scissors in bundle packages or even separately if you choose. If you buy these scissors in a bundle package they can also come with storage containers to help keep track of the scissors and to see them better. These types of decorative scissors come in different shapes like zigzag, postage stamp or wavy lines.
These decorative scissors will also work perfect for your children to add a decorative touch to the edges of photos or pieces of paper for layering. The decorative scissors usually come with the blunt tips and plastic edges. Most of these decorative scissors are not very sharp so your children have less of a risk for cutting themselves.
There are also scissors available where you just change the cutting edges and use the same scissor handles. These types of scissors are much like the decorative scissors but instead you only have one handle to keep track of. These scissors can be found in most craft stores or scrapbooking shops. They are safe and easy to use but it may be easier with little kids to buy the whole set of decorative scissors so that your kids aren’t always changing the cutting design, they can just change their scissors. If you have a lot of little kids that like to help you scrapbook then this may not be the right choice for you.
The best scissors for safe scrapbooking for kids can really be anything you find that you feel are safe enough for your kids to use. The best ones for little kids will have blunt tips and safety edges in case a little finger may get in the way. Plastic scissors come in so many shapes, sizes, colors and patterns that your kids can choose which ones they like and will be happy with something of their own. Keep an eye on your children as they cut at first. See how well they do and then judge for your self whether they need something a little safer. The best part is that you can enjoy scrapbooking with your kids and they can spend enjoying time with you.
