Child Self Opening Scissors

from £6.95

Conventional style scissors with a hidden spring that will force the blades back to an open position after the grip has been eased.  Our Child Self Opening Scissors are ideal for children in a mainstream setting who need some extra assistance when using scissors.  The scissors should be held in thumb and middle finger (for maximum strength) the index finger is placed outside the loop to provide guidance and control.  The spring will automatically reopen the scissors when pressure is released.


Remember!! The index finger is always used for guidance – use the middle finger through the finger loop of the scissor to provide the strength.  Well you’d never hold a pencil in just thumb and index finger would you?!
