Ray (my youngest son) and I made this video to show you the effective trick I use to teach children to hold their pencils correctly.  I usually call them "crab claws" but some of the children in the outdoor OT group wanted to call them "crawdad claws" since we had been seeing a lot of crawdads in the creek in the I put both names on the video. :)
