If your young child needs practice with their pencil grip, try a pack of Melissa & Doug Triangular Crayons.
My youngest son got these as a gift one year for his birthday. He loves having his own dedicated box of crayons to use.Unlike the standard cardboard crayon box, the plastic tray doesn’t tear or crack, and lets kids see all the crayon colors at once. The different slots hold each color in place. This set comes with ten colors, so it covers most of the basic options.
Kids can easily grip the fatter crayon with three distinct edges, and it helps them practice a proper grip for writing. As an added bonus, these crayons don’t roll. They work great for the car or other travel where you don’t want to be fishing around underneath the seat looking for your child’s favorite color. You can get these sets in a 24 color option. Paired with a themed activity or coloring book, this set makes a great gift for any young child.
