How do you teach which foot for which shoe?

try locating something on the shoe that is only on the outside or inside sides. Most kids shoes have some sort of design that is the same on each shoe and is only on either the inside side or outside side. My daughter almost never gets her shoes wrong and she's only 3.5! We just look for the word (brand name) or the design (princesses, etc) and tell her where it goes.

I simply drew/draw small smiley faces on the inside of each shoe and tell my dd to have the shoes smile at each other:-)

I agree with Stephanie, try the circle way. Since there feet have the shape too it could help remind them of it. I like Marnie idea, that sounds fun.

I put a star in the right foot for my children that are right handed. I remind them that the star is in the shoe of the same side that they right with or hold their fork. Works pretty good at my daycare/preschool.

shoes make a circle. ( ) and curve inward, not out )(.
either that or the buckle/velcro goes on the outside.

but really my gals were 5 before they figured this out... good grief.

My husband and I tell our daughter to match her foot with the shoe. Example: (left) big toes to little toes. It really seems to work.
