      are in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten. You know what those classrooms look like? The kids use little safety scissors. There aren't a whole lot of dangerous things accessible. Tempting items the teacher uses, like staplers or big person scissors or Sharpie markers or food knives, are put up out of the reach of curious little hands. There's a reason for this.
