Rubber-banded Markers for Better Traction

One elementary student has quite a bit of difficulty opening her color markers independently.  We tried slipping these teensy rubber bands into the space between the marker and the cap, but then the cap wouldn't snap closed.  Oh well...
So, we tried winding several rubber bands around the marker and also the cap, to see if she could get a little more traction when trying to pull the two parts apart.  Voila!  With a little practice, it worked!
Once the first one worked, she decided to match the rubber band color to the color of all the other markers...schmart!
