Most children love writing- I know mine do! Even Dot loves to join in and do her ‘homework’ when Mikey sits down to do his! The problem is though is that they have to use big pencils, unless you ‘borrow’ some when you play crazy golf!
I was amazed when I heard that there was a company out there who were making pencils that were the perfect size for little ones!
Introducing, Write Size! Write Size specialise in making pencils that are the right size for little hands, giving them better control and balance for writing.
As they say on their website, “Would you give a 5 year old a full sized guitar to play with, an adult sized ball to learn the skills of football with or size 10 shoes to learn to walk with? Using this logic, why do we give children adult pencils to learn to write with?
That is very hard to argue with, so we decided to put all of the different sizes of pencil to the test to really see if they helped the children with their writing!
Age 2-6 pencils
Dorothy tried out the smallest size pencils in her Write Size Workbook.
Dorothy normally tries to write with my pens so it was interesting to see her with something more her size!
Although only 2, I could tell the difference in her writing immediately.
She held the pencil better and could draw and write much easier than she had in the past.
It was a definite thumbs up for these pencils!
Age 6-10 pencils
For the pack of age 6-10 pencils, my niece Maisie was the tester.
Maisie has been a keen writer and reader since starting school last year and is almost always writing something.
She was the perfect candidate!
In her own words, Maisie gave me her verdict, ” It’s not heavy and makes my writing seem pretty. It’s easy to write with too”.
She also wrote her review… Another thumbs up for Age 6-10 pencils!
Age 10+ pencils
I have to say that I was skeptical about the Age 10+ pencils.
I didn’t think that tweens and teens pencils would be that far off from adult pencils or make that much of a difference to writing. Mikey put them to the test.
Although a bit chunkier than the pencils he’s used to, even at 13 years old, Mikey found that the Write Size pencils really helped with his writing.
He said that it was easier to grip than a regular pencil and didn’t break, which his school ones normally do!
So there we have it, a clean sweep! I am so glad that I found Write Size pencils as they really can change the way that children write for the better. There’s also a added plus, as each pack is very affordable at only £3.99 for a pack of 5 pencils 🙂
