Let them color on the walls!

Color on the wall to improve pencil control. What?!

Ok, we don’t mean that literally. This solution is all about location, location, location.

Instead of coloring, painting, drawing etc. while seated at a table, tape the papers to a wall, fridge, or sliding glass door to create a vertical work surface. This way the child’s arms aren’t resting on the table but “working” to strengthen important muscles in the arm and wrist needed for pencil control.
