Welcome to the first installment of Photo Friday, a place where I share a photo or two of activities and ideas that can help boost your child’s development. Please give me feedback on my ideas — I love hearing how they go over with other kids!

Stackable crayons from Dollar Tree encourage kids to pinch with thumb and index finger. This promotes correct, mature grasp for coloring and writing. One dollar for thirty of them.
Stackable pencils from Learning Express also help kids who have trouble with pencil grasp and struggle with pinching their pencil with thumb and index finger. Nooks between pencils serve as a natural groove for fingers to rest. Stack more to make it easier to hold.
