Handwriting isn't just about forming the letters correctly.

The children also need to develop the skills to enable them to hold a pencil correctly. 

There are a wide range of activities that don't include a pencil that can help children develop a good pincer grip which in turn lead to a good pencil holding technique

  • threading
  • picking objects up with pegs
  • sorting buttons or other small objects
  • pushing pompoms into bottles
  • threading pipe cleaners into colanders
  • cutting with scissors
  • squeezing oranges to make juice
  • using a trigger spray bottle ( with child safe contents) 
  • pick up sticks games
  • peeling tape off a surface
