Pencil Grip and Drawing Development

One of the Toddler milestones that worth capturing is the pencil grip.  I didn’t even realise that there were several different stages until Harvey was about 18 months old when I stumbled across an article on Facebook.  Luckily (though no surprise) I have taken plenty of photos of Harvey writing, since when he first started to use chalk and crayons.

Before discussing Harvey’s development, let’s understand the different pencil grips.  Below is some good information sheet I found on the PDL websites.  Refer to this link to get a full fact sheet and other interesting milestone information.
