Today’s toy of the day is Crayola Crayons! This timeless favorite is a great economical tool to be used for teaching colors, tripod grasp, prewriting, developing finger and hand skills and more. You can color and draw with it, but you can also melt them to create endless craft projects. The possibilities are endless. See Shannon?s trick for using them to develop the tripod grasp!
