Cut & Create While Learning an Essential Skill
I Can Cut Toddler Big Skills for Little Hands helps children build hand strength and dexterity by teaching them to use scissors to cut lines, curves, and shapes. Children will create puppets, play games, and make puzzles while learning an essential skill.

A Fun Introduction to Seatwork
One of four books in the Big Skills for Little Hands Toddler series, I Can Cut Toddler will gently introduce your 18-month- to three-year-olds to seatwork. This series features fun activity pages that teach important fine motor skills necessary for academics.

Toddler-Friendly Topics
Children will have fun cutting, pasting, tracing, and coloring their way to scholarly success throughout this series! Simple tasks, large colorful illustrations, and toddler-friendly topics; it doesn't get any easier than this. The 80-page I Can Cut Toddler Big Skills for Little Hands is a pared-down version of the same 204-page I Can Cut book we've carried for years, featuring the pages most suitable to a younger audience.

Begin With the Little Guys
If you have the privilege, begin your role of teaching parent with the little guys. They are the most authentic of students, their expectations are exceedingly low, they are amazed at your unending wisdom, and they are thrilled just to be in your presence. Teaching this age is pure pleasure!
Just right for toddlers 18 months to 3 years.
For the slightly older youngster, 4 to 6 years old, check out I Can Cut or the complete Big Skills Set of 5 for Pre-K to Kindergarten.

Also in This Series:
I Can Paste Toddler

I Can Cut! Timberdoodle Review by The Adventures of Bear
"...We love the bright colorful images for cutting. We love that once the images are cut, there is some more interaction with the pieces (after you cut out a flower, you glue it to a stem; after you cut out the caterpillar’s legs, you can make it walk and play with it, etc.)...The progression moves along rapidly as well. There are 38 pages. By the tenth activity page, the child is expected to cut a zigzag, and the eleventh activity involves curvy lines. This wouldn’t bother me, but the book is labeled “Toddler.” For the average toddler, this book is MUCH too challenging..."

Nice book but too advanced for my son September 4, 2013
Reviewer: Jen  
I ordered this book for my 23 month old son. I wanted something to keep him occupied while his sister did her work. I really like the cute animals and colorful pages. It also starts off with just cutting a few short straight lines and gets progressively harder. However, he is just starting with scissors and doesn't have the control or coordination to hold the paper and cut on the dotted line. I still really like this book and will hold onto it for later.

Cute, but not ideal for toddlers December 29, 2010
Reviewer: Tamsyn Spackman from Logan, UT United States  
I bought this book for my nephew and the bigger "I Can Cut" book for my two children, ages 3 and 21 months, with the idea that I would check contents of this one and have my kids share the bigger book.  I changed my mind when I saw the pages.  My older child did Kumon's "Let's Cut Paper" and I liked it more because the lines were wider, the progression was more methodical, and the projects were short and sweet.  I doubt that my 21-month-old would have the attention span to for many of these, and some are too difficult for her.  I bought Kumon for my daughter, and I will follow it up with with the larger "I Can Cut" when the time comes.  Although "I Can Cut Toddler Big Skills for Little Hands" has twice as many projects as the Kumon book, Kumon is much more age-appropriate, in my opinion.  Having said that, I'm sure that my nephew will enjoy this book.  Get this one only if the $10.50 version is out of your budget, because it will give you a lot more for your money.

Great for fine motor skills October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
This book is great for developing your toddlers fine motor skills.  This book is very attractive.  Your child will love the bright pictures.  Also, the pages are sturdy, making the cutting easier.  This is a book that you will need to be right with your child, working with them.  Each page provides cutting activities, starting out with straight lines and gradually getting harder.  A good way to "do school" that your child will love!

Great Cutting Practice October 15, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oberlin, OH United States  
I purchased this book for our 3 year old after she expressed interest in more purposeful cutting activities.  She had loved cutting snips of paper and practicing, so I knew she would enjoy this book.  We use it as part of her "school time" work and it's one of her favorite things to do.  We go slowly and it sometimes takes a couple of days to finish a page, but she knows that when her hand gets tired, she can't control her scissors as well.  The activities are very fun, the pages are sturdy enough for little hands, and we really like this book!
