A good pencil grip will encourage good hand posture while writing. A grip can alleviate joint pain and make writing more comfortable for those who write with a tight grasp. Store-bought pencil grips are easy to lose but luckily they are even easier to make. All you need is a rubber band to get started. Use vibrantly colored rubber bands for a unique grip.
Things You'll Need
- Rubber band
Cut the rubber band open.
Tightly wrap the rubber band around the pencil in a spiral pattern.
Overlap the rubber band's edges, tucking the loose ends under to secure.
Glue the ends if they are not adequately secured.
Use as many rubber bands as you need.
Tips & Warnings
- Layer rubber bands for added cushioning on finger joints.
