Getting young children to put on shoes independently can be tough. While they may know how to slip their feet into shoes, they may need help differentiating the right shoe from the left one.
1. Cut a sticker into half and place the left half on the inside of the left shoe and do the same for the right half.
2. When the pair of shoes are put side by side, the sticker will look almost whole when it meets in the middle (pictured below) and seeing this will help the child tell the right shoe from the left.
Use a sticker that sticks well on the insole and pick one that the child likes.
