Do your little ones struggle with handwriting?  Is it hard for them to hold a pencil comfortably?  Or do they grip it very tightly? 

Learning to write shouldn't have to be a struggle. Often, kids learn good grasp patterns by doing small muscle activities.  But some don't and still have trouble grasping their pencil in a comfortable way.

One of my favorite resources for pencil grip aid is a pencil kit from Draw Your World.  It is made up of helpful writing aids and devices to make learning to write easier for your kids.    

Here's one of their aids that can help your kids learn to use this more mature grasp pattern...

This device guides the fingers into place for a mature grasp.  Please see how they use it, in the last picture below, as it can be grasped in two ways - and is called Twist and Write:
