Usage: Cut is a useful sign for babies that like crafts. Because you may not want a pair of scissors lying around with a young child, you can keep the scissors out of reach – but, teaching baby cut, allows her to communicate when she wants you to get them out. Simple activities like cutting or painting, will help Baby develop her gross motor skills, while having fun (and making a mess)
