The Wood Handled Puncher is the same diameter as a pencil — this work will help develop the small muscle groups needed for learning to grip a pencil correctly. Wooden handle is 2½" long; metal punch is ¾" long. Use for a variety of art projects — children love the repetition involved in this activity. Children can trace geometric shapes or puzzle map pieces on paper, perforate around the edges by punching tiny holes with the puncher, then punch out the shape. Trace stencils, then punch out designs for seasonal artwork. Ages 5 and up.
