Stickman Figures are a series of simple drawings with a simple premise: Identify the hand that is holding the object. The directions are very simple and this drill is extremely useful with children who are having difficulty applying physical awareness of left/right to the paper/conceptual equivalent.
Procedure: Print off or preview the attached document. Read the instructions. Select an image and have the child identify in which hand the object is being held.
