Bead necklace

 

Your child already owns a Faber-Castell rollerball pen or fountain pen? Its cap is equipped with an eye. The latter may be used for putting through a piece of ribbon or cord which you can tie to the cap. Subject to your child’s likes or dislikes he or she may string coloured beads, buttons or other interesting little somethings onto this cord. Depending on what your child fancies he or she may change the respective pattern at any time as he/she pleases. In addition, this fun game also represents a good loosening-up exercise for children’s fingers to interrupt long periods of writing.

 
 

Finger acrobatics – use your fountain pen cap

 

For loosening up his or her hands, your child should take short breaks and use them for engaging in little games. The easiest thing to do is take the cap of the fountain pen and juggle it by passing it between the fingers. This will breathe some new life into the hands of your little ‚acrobat writer‘ and simultaneously practise motor skills.
