Use Coban to Customize an Adapted Pencil Grip

This is a wonderful idea for adapting a standard pencil:

Coban on Pencil

The neat thing about Coban is that it's so easy to apply and remove.  I snitch mine from my husband's tack room but when I'm hankerin' for a color besides beige I go to Southern States and buy up the purple and pink packs of Vetwrap  Vetrap source

I usually cue students to make sure their fingers are touching the "rings" at the pointed end of Crayola crayons, so they hold the crayon close to the tip.  With Coban, or Vetrap, you can "highlight" the part of the pencil where you want fingers to go, by using a contrasting color of the material.  I'll have to take a photo of that!
