Simply cut a hole in a tennis ball to slip a pen through, or wrap a washcloth and ponytail holder around a pencil to make these items easier to grip. These modifications would be helpful for those who have poor grip strength or for those who experience pain when holding a pen, such as in cases of arthritis. $1 or less
