Use golf pencils.
To help your child get a better grasp when he starts learning to write, consider buying some golf pencils. These are the small pencils you see at mini-golf courses and bowling alleys. Their size makes them easier for little hands to hold on to and balance correctly. If you can’t find golf pencils, that’s OK. A broken crayon, half a piece of chalk or even the short leftover piece of a well-used pencil could work, too.
