Teach Little Ones to Put on their Own Jackets

Toddlers and preschoolers are notorious for saying "I'll do it!" Toddler and preschoolers are also notorious for hating to put on a jacket. Make trait #1 put trait #2 to rest by teaching your toddler or preschooler to put on his or her own jacket. She will love the independence, and it's really not difficult, as long as you use an old trick.

1. Place the jacket on the floor, the right side facing down.

2. Have your child stand at the head of the jacket and place her arms inside the sleeves. It will look like she's about to put on her jacket backwards and upside down.

3. Have your child flip the jacket over her head. Viola! It's on correctly and you or your child can now zip it up.
