Help your child learn his left from his right -- and keep all his favorite footwear neat in the process -- with a homemade shoe keeper that offers a visual solution to the perennial mystery, "Which foot?"
Ages: 2 years and up
Lay the papers facedown in a row so they overlap slightly, then tape them together.
Trace one of your child's shoes onto a piece of card stock. Cut out the shape and use it as a template to cut out 7 more soles.
Using a glue stick, adhere the card stock soles, in pairs, to the front of the papers (to make a pair, simply flip one sole so the toes face each other). Write "left" or "right" on each sole to encourage early word recognition, then cover the entire surface with clear Con-Tact paper for easy cleanup.
