Few exercises to enhance pencil grip : 

One of the reasons for children who are reluctant to write is poor pencil grip. A good grip gives the wrist and palm the agility to hold the pencil well, move it and also adapt as per the need to do a formation. In fact, this should be done as a regular exercise for all children. A good handwriting is not just about aesthetics as per graphology but it is about having a well rounded personality. Once a strong grip is established the children find it is easy to imbibe the writing skills.

Good luck!
