Sometimes, however, kids will get “stuck” in one grasp and have a hard time trying out more mature grasps. The solution?    Give them a crayon that’s been broken in half.    This naturally encourages them to “pinch” the crayon between their thumb and index finger, moving them into a more mature and skilled grasp pattern. The reason is simple — it’s hard to use a cylindrical or digital grasp on a short crayon.
