Did you know that today, August 13th, is National Left Handers’ Day? As a mom of a left-handed son, this made me smile! For fun, I thought I’d share some items I found on Amazon geared for the left-handed set. Some of these may be more practical, while others may be more in jest.
Fiskars Left-Handed Pointed Tip Kid Scissors: $5.16. We actually purchased these for our son awhile ago (along with a second pair for his classroom) and they are awesome! They encourage good grip and can help your child master their scissor skills. Recommend.
Maped Visio Left-handed Pen Pack, Blue & Black: $6.98. These pens allow left-handers to observe their handwriting while they write. According to the reviews, some purchased as a “gag” gift for their left-handed friends only to discover their friends found them to be really useful.
Lefty Notebook – 100 pages, single subject, college-ruled: $6.89. A wire-bound notebook that opens left-to-right for the lefties.
Left-Handed Calligraphy (paperback): $6.61. This book covers the unique challenges of learning calligraphy as a left-hander.
Your Left-Handed Child: $8.46. Guidance for helping parents of left-handed children (from very small – teen) learn to master important skills such as dressing, handwriting, and even sports or instrument playing.
Lefty Bamboo Kitchen Utensil Set: $22.99. Comes in a mesh bag.
Left-Handed Can Opener: $19.95. Designed to grip with the right hand, open with the left.
Left-Handed Art & Activity Kit: $34.95. Includes art supplies, tablets, and more for left-handed kids.
I May be Left Handed, but I’m Always Right T: $7.50 – $19.99. Assorted colors available.
If you’re left-handed, what would you say your experience has been? I’d love to hear any advice you’d have as I raise a left-handed child in a right-handed world. Thoughts? Tips?
