    Re: Cut the shape out for

    A children's workbook has various outlines printed in it. An adult can follow the lines with scissors, cutting out the shapes outlined in the book.

    Re: Cut the shape out for

    The suggestion is that children who are too young to use scissors should ask the adult to do the cutting for them.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
