  • I think this is something that depends on the child, but generally between 2 and 4 years old, would be my guess :)

  • Ki started really playing with the glue and stickers at about 12 or 13 months old. She didn't start with the scissors until about 2 or so.
    Now, she cuts, glues, just puts stuff together every day. She's 5 1/2 now.
    Not sure about other kids though, I only have the one.

  • i babysat a 2 yo that was great with those things.
    none of my kids were though.
    dd is 2 now, and i think she could handle scissors pretty soon.
    i just remembered when my 1st born was 4 we were moving and i walked into the living room to find our moving boxes decorated with stamps!
    it is funny now, but i was not happy to see all those stamps wasted!
