Kid's Scissors

SORT BY:
Creativity is an essential part of a child's life and being able to craft a variety of art projects helps spark development, whether at home or school. Kids' scissors make it easy for children to cut out shapes or pictures and trim string, tape, and fabric. They come in a wide array of colors and sizes, with safety features that protect little hands. Staples carries many brands of scissors including Westcott, Fiskars and Maped USA.

Kids Scissors That Come In Several Colors, Sizes and Styles
Kids' scissors come with a coated, soft grip that improves handling skills and prevents the tool from slipping out of their hands. You can choose from many colors including solids and patterns. Symmetrical handles work for left and right-handed children alike, and an anti-microbial coating helps reduce the growth and spread of germs. The grips are specially designed to resist the wear and tear that comes with consistent use. Some have dual-control handles for training while others have a permanent safety shield.

Safety Features Attached To Kids Scissors
While the main purpose of sewing scissors is to cut fabric and a variety of media, it's also important to consider safety features where kids are concerned. For preschoolers and young children in elementary school, blunt, rounded tips are ideal and help to reduce the risk of the blades breaking the skin. For children in higher grades who demonstrate greater motor skills and knowledge of safety practices, a precision tip gives more control over cutting activities. Choose a pair that comes with a plastic safety cover for storing between uses.

Can You Buy Kids' Scissors in Bulk?
Shoppers can find a variety of package sizes from individual pairs of scissors to those that contain multiple units for classroom use. Some come with a storage case while others come with a caddy that's easy to set on a table and access during a project. Purchase them in packs of a dozen, or a case of 25 so each student can have their own pair to use for art projects.

What Type of Blades Do Kids' Scissors Have?
Most brands have stainless steel blades, though some come with titanium bonded blades that resist corrosion for added durability. Shoppers can kids' scissors with 5 or 6-inch blades, though some come in smaller or larger sizes, depending on the individual's needs. Many have a nonstick surface that repels residue from tape and glue to keep the scissors in prime cutting condition. Use smaller blades for young children including toddlers and preschoolers, and larger sizes for school-aged kids.

What Age Is Appropriate for Teaching Children to Use Scissors?
As soon as children have a measure of control with motor skills, you can easily train them to use scissors. Choose a pair that has a rounded tip to begin with and soft handles that promote comfort to help little hands adjust to the pressure. When they become comfortable with the operation and learn proper safety measures, you can upgrade to a pair with a pointed tip. Be sure to watch children while they use scissors to ensure proper use and to prevent injury. Staples carries a wide selection of scissors including medical scissors, kitchen shears, and more.
