Here’s a fun activity to do with your child of 5 years or more to practice handwriting casually! Use the Squiggle Wiggle Writer to draw funny shapes in black, pink, purple, green and blue. It’s heavy and it vibrates, encouraging fine-motor control and awareness while creating hours of fun. It’s perfect for these little sensory seekers who need to learn handwriting like everybody else! Fun-proofed with Dominic, 11, who has autism 😉
