Coupon Clipping is…

 …great for practicing cutting!

IMG_5340

Every weekend we get the paper and look through all the store circulars for great sales and then clip our coupons.  One day Emily asked if she could help too.  I gave her all the coupon pages that I did not need and then let her look through them and clip her own coupons.

This is a great activity to practice using scissors and it also teaches or at least exposes them to coupons and saving money, not to mention it is fun to do too.  Emily was so excited that she was able to cut coupons just like Mommy she even saved them in her pocket book to use when she was playing store.  Of course her favorite coupons to clip are the ones for Chuck E. Cheese!!

My daughter loves to cut coupons! She cutes up the grocery ads, too, and tapes them on the front door!

B has tried coupons, but prefers catalog "junk mail" he sorts for pictures he wants to use in his art or letters of the week.

I'm so glad you shared- a couple years ago I had my girls cutting out coupons & they loved it... but somehow I forgot about this fun activity! Now, I will bring out the coupons! :)
