My whole family is left-handed. Both kids, my husband and I are all lefties.
So this means we adjust things to fit our style, and that I have some tips for lefties that I wrote down for my own kids.
You don't have to be left-handed to enjoy BIC Atlantis® pens. They are pretty wonderful, the ballpoint glides well, and the soft grip is easy to hold. They also come in great colors. Obviously my daughter loves the blue best! My own favorite is pink, and my son likes the black pens. They also have metal clips and look really nice too.
But why are they great pens for left-handers?
Tip 1: Pick a good ball point pen. One with a ball that moves easily and with ink that flows well and one that ink dries fast. A lot of left handers hold their pens in different ways, and some writing may wind up with your hand dragging across the paper which can smudge ink.
Tip 2: Flip that notebook over and start from the back. Now, a lot of teachers won't want you handing in assignments that way, but some will let you. But you can absolutely take notes and make lists that way. Notebooks made for lefties can be expensive, but if you just flip over an inexpensive notebook you get that coil off your hand, wrist or arm.
Tip 3: Try standard scissors. This seems counterintuitive, but a lot of scissors that are made now can be used with either hand, and a lot of the time, the standard scissors are sharper. There are a lot less options in left-handed scissors, so if you find a standard pair you can use, go for it.
I wrote a note for my own kids. These are great for all sorts of projects and ideas. Writing notes to your kids to include in lunch boxes and bags, helping to keep track of things you need to do.
