Give the child paper and a crayon.
If the child does not spontaneously scribble on the paper, the adult can demonstrate.
Observe the child’s grasp and see if fingers are starting to be included in the grasp.
Encourage parents to give their child supervised practices with crayons to help them develop a more refined grasp and better control.
