(Don’t mind the moon sand on K’s hands…we spent a long time outside that day). When I was younger, my brother and I would go outside and give the grass a haircut. For me, it was time to keep my hands busy while I processed whatever was going on in my life. My brother and I named our lawn Harry and we would spend ages just cutting Harry’s hair.
This was a great activity for my boys because it really did keep them entertained for a long time but it also helped them improve their hand-eye coordination, scissor cutting skills and general dexterity.
The next day both of them begged to go back outside and cut the grass’s hair :).
