Storing scissors in the kitchen drawer was fine until my daughter was tall enough to get her sweet little fingers on them. I used Command Hooks to hang them onto the wall behind the kitchen counter. No more little fingers on the scissors….for now. I can also see them hanging, or not hanging if they’ve been used and not hung back up. I usually go into a panic search if they’re not there.
I also turn our knives sideways to keep little fingers off. Just a precaution because you never know when little ones are going to have an idea that requires something sharp.
