How To Celebrate National Left-Handers Day!
Most people in the world are right handed – somewhere between 70% - 95%. This is true no matter the area, race, or class of the population. That’s a lot of right-handed people! This leaves only 5% - 30% of left-handed people in the world, and August 13 th is the day to celebrate your left-handedness!
One fun way to celebrate this day is by helping your right-handed friends and family members learn what it’s like to adapt to life in a left-handed world, since you have to adapt to a right-handed world every day!
Below are a few fun ways to create your own left-handed world! Get your right-handed friends, family, or coworkers to use their left hands to:
- Make coffee
- Peel fruits or veggies (careful using knives, though!)
- Use microwave controls
- Draw a straight line on a piece of paper
- Use the computer mouse to draw a shape on the screen or to click and drag an icon
- Cut a straight line or a shape with a pair of scissors
- Pour milk or water into a glass
- Flip any instruments around and play left-handed (guitars are great for this!)
