Expanding horizons

The Project Orange Thumb® Teacher Grant Program is intended to recognize teachers who share a passion for fostering creativity through hands-on learning. The goal of these grants is to help set students up for success by supplying teachers with the tools they need to provide a positive learning environment. We’ll choose 25 teachers to receive $500 plus tools for your classroom.


Project Orange Thumb® Teacher Grants are open to preschool through 6th grade teachers in spring. Grant recipients are typically announced in late-spring.

Helping kids soar

At Fiskars, we’re committed to developing just the right tools to help kids explore, learn, inspire and grow. That’s why our teacher-recommended kids’ scissors and pre-school scissors are designed with safety, comfort and other unique features to help make learning easier and fun.
