If you don’t find a grip,(I know its a hassle to get it easily) there are some easy techniques you may try. Get a pom-pom and ask your child to hide it under his last two fingers.

If you don’t find a pom-pom you can use any small item like a cotton ball or tissue paper. It helps your child to understand and make a  pencil hold easily.

Playing with play dough/ putty is a great way to strengthen your child’s hand and finger muscles.

Putty is harder than play dough, it helps to strengthen the hand and finger muscles. Hide some small animals or his favourite sea creatures or dinosaurs inside the putty and ask him to find them. Putty is actually harder than play dough and needs a little bit force to stretch.

You can use “play dough”, try different techniques and allow him to make different shapes. Play dough is easily available and cheap as compared to Putty.

Let me know how do you work with your kid’s Fine notor skills and share your concerns.
