When presenting this work, I focus on a simple and clear style. As always, I use a tray that is on a shelving unit within my son’s reach.
In addition to presenting the work on a tray, I make sure to provide two bowls for this type of work.
Once the papers are cut into strips, they are more likely to move around so I also place them onto a bowl or plate for Mr. Toddler. Almost all of the bowls, plates, cups etc that I use for our works come from second hand shops and none of them cost more than 1 to 2 euro a piece. Most cost less than .50 cents! I like to make sure our materials are beautiful, but also that we can afford to replace if they break.
I also find it important to provide a bowl for placing the cut pieces; hence, the second bowl.
The scissors I leave on the tray. However if you also have younger kids using the same space or your child is just starting to use scissors, it may be wise to only give them to your child after they have selected the particular work.
