My children use up plenty of 2B pencils for their homework and when the pencils get too short (about 3 inches long), it's no longer conducive for them to hold the pencils properly. But I can't bear to throw them away yet.
So I had been looking around the house and thinking of some way to lengthen the pencils without compromising too much on comfort and handwriting.
I finally found this.... a broken angry bird ballpoint pen. It's one of those things the kids get from party packs that don't last long.
But it's a perfect fit over the 2B pencil. It holds firm and snug and the pencils is long again! Walaa!!!
And the pencil can be used till it's less than 2 inches long.
