My kids are pretty independent when it comes to a lot of things. One thing that they really want to do on their own all the time is put on their shoes. Of course that means that there is a 50/50 chance that they will put them on the correct feet, most of the time that is not the case. So, I had to figure out a way to make it easier for them to tell which shoe went on the correct foot.
This is when I started with the stickers. Originally I was going to put a sticker in just the shoes that go on the right foot. But that could still lead to some confusion. So, I decided the best thing to do would be to cut the sticker in half and make it into a “puzzle”. My oldest loves doing puzzles so this worked perfectly! She no longer gets her shoes mixed up!
That’s a win for this Mommy! 🙂
