This is a simple activity that’s very important for children to develop their grasping skills. A child ought to learn and bring into practice the correct form and pattern of grasping a pencil for their future. This needs to be cultivated in the child right from the beginning stage. It could be anything right from picking up big objects like a teddy bear to picking up a tiny object such as a seed. We need to strengthen the hand muscles of a child, which this activity assists the child to do.
