Left, right, left, right . . .
Does your child tend to mix up left and right when trying to put on their own shoes? Help them out by drawing a smiley face on the side of the soles in permanent marker. All they have to do is make sure that the faces are looking at each other before putting on their shoes! You could also draw half a smiley face at the back of each insole and teach your child to line up the two halves.
