Benjamin Scissor-hands

Our son has always been very crafty. He loves hands-on activities, so he's had his own easel and brushes, finger paints, glue, construction paper, scissors, etc for some time. As Mom noted, it was bound to happen one day that… he cut his own hair.

Yep, Daddy found him taking a chunk off his own forehead, and after—as calmly as possible—explaining to him that this wasn't such a good idea, we all went back to ourselves, for a little while.

Five minutes later I came back to check on him and found him cutting hair again: his Sister's! Fortunately the damage was minimal.

How to let him continue his explorations into hair-styling-land while preventing the not so flattering consequences?
