Toddlers: Really into the idea of ‘I can do it myself!’ but no so great at execution. Case in point: Putting on jackets. Where will their arms end up? It’s anyone’s guess, really.

Just in time for colder weather, a viral video from Playful Learning Box is demonstrating an easy way for little kids to nail the art of putting on a coat. And it actually looks pretty fun.

There’s even a rhyme to help you master it.

Tag to the toes, arms in the holes.
Over your head, and on it goes.

A parenting trick you’ve probably figured out by now? A little empowerment can go a long way. And if your child can be empowered in time for the winter, even better.
