Pencil Grip Help: "Wrap a hair tie as shown. Kids get used to doing it themselves quickly. It gently forces them to hold the pencil in the open web of their hands and the pencil with their fingertips. Do this for a few weeks, then remove the ties. By then it's become habit to hold a pencil correctly. Kids that have weak fine motor muscles in their hands are going to struggle, so do strengthening activities. That helps with control and neatness when writing." From a friend's FB post.

* Pencil Grip Help: your children will be fastly used to hold correctly the pencil. Very quickly they will feel their motor muscles less weak and their fingers tip totally adapted to the writing tool.
