Teaching Preschoolers How to Grip a Pencil, Crayon or Marker

I have been researching some developmentally appropriate ways to teach three year olds how to hold a pencil. Here are some resources I have come across on You Tube and Teacher's Pay Teachers.

Lakeshore Learning has several great products to build fine motors skills needed for gripping a pencil. My class LOVES to feed the animals with these great products! However, you can do the same thing with materials you already have at home!! For example, tweezers and cotton balls !
