One of our OTs recommended an app that's for doodling but can also be used to keep students visually-engaged during handwriting practice/remediation:

I just wanted to let you know about a fun drawing app that I came across today.  It's called KidsDoodle.  It's free but if you want to get rid of the ads, you have to pay $0.99.  I used it with one of my students to practice forming letters and writing her name.  First we wrote the letters using the pencil tool (lots of multi-colored/neon options) and then we traced along each letter using the eraser tool.  The coolest part about this app, in my opinion, is that when you're done, you can watch a video that shows each letter/drawing/etc. being formed.  Great if you need to go back and look at it later!

Some reviewers wrote that in the free version you may want to watch out for some of the ads...buyer beware!
