Best crayons for toddlers and preschoolers: thick vs thin

Message length 300 characters recommended

I think the best crayons for toddlers and preschoolers are the thick, chunky crayons. These are easier for little ones to grip. In the beginning, they'll probably hold them in their fist instead of the proper grip like we hold pens. Over time, as they eventually transition to the proper technique, they can start using thin crayons. Without the proper fine motor development skills, they'll have a hard time holding onto them so it's better to stick with chunky crayons first.
