Handwriting Without Tears fun

The early, early HWT book has enticing drawings for kids to practice eye-hand coordination with their little pencils.  If you're like me, there are only so many HWT books we're able to purchase each year, so I'm always looking for ways to stretch out their use.
Try using drink stirrers as invisible ink pencils to "color" the little stars and fireflies on the beginning pages.  We also connected the stars and fireflies, invisibly of course, and it was fun to make screechy noises with the stirrers on the page as we invisibly drew a line from one to the next.
