Little Pencils for Little Hands
Have you ever tried to write with one of those BIG souvenir pencils? It's pretty unwieldy, isn't it? Well, that's basically how it feels when you put a big primary pencil or a long #2 pencil in the hand of a small child. Have them use a short golf pencil instead. Give them a small hand-held pencil sharpener to sharpen it. It's a great activity to improve hand skills.
