I’m showing you how my four year old does it…but my kids have done it from the time they’re two…and maybe could have learned earlier.
First…lay down the coat with the outside part of the coat touching the floor. The neck of the coat should be facing your child. The child puts his arms into the sleeve holes of his coat…
And flips the coat over his head.
He adjusts his sleeves…or you adjust them for him.
Then he wipes his nose with his sleeve. (This step is optional.)
Tada! Coat is on.
Here’s a video, which is a much easier way to see how the Coat Trick works. Please be sure to admire Malachi’s silly face as he prepares to show you the Coat Trick on video. The silly face part of the Coat Trick is also optional. :)
Have any great tricks up your sleeves?
