Mini Easi-Grip Loop Scissors  : Therapro, Inc.
Great for little hands when just learning how to cut. Safe and kids enjoy them. Use with paper and play-doh.
I use this program often during my therapy sessions. It is easy to learn and most children are able to grasp the concept of their "engine" being too high, too low, or just right. Can be used at school and at home.
I have been using this paper for years when teaching children how to form their letters. The colored lines plus pictures of "sky" and "ground" make starting from the top much easier for children of all ages.
