Anyway, Stacey, a colleague of mine, showed me how to make a loom bracelet into a fine motor tool. Having another idea for helping a child with a tripod grip is always good.
After making the bracelet (about 45-48 elastics long), attach an animal charm. When you notice a young child is having difficulty holding a pencil, simply bring out the "Magic Turtle", or "Magic Dolphin". Tell the child to hold this magic creature in place with the pinkie and ring finger. That leaves the other digits to hold the pencil. GENIUS!
Making a loom bracelet on a finger loom does not require you to use a crochet hook. Click HERE to see a video on how to make the basic bracelet, if you don't see it embedded below:
