Zipping and Unzipping

“Just Zip It!”

  • Practice makes perfect.  Give your child opportunities to zip and unzip.  Present your child with sweaters, coats, pants, zip-loc bags, pocket books, etc., all of which have zippers.
  • Demonstrate how to hold the bottom of the clothing with one hand and then the zipper with the other.
  • Allow your child to watch as you zip and unzip your jacket.
  • Place the article of clothing on your child.
  • Stand behind your child and physically assist with zipping and unzipping.
  • Regularly instruct as your child attempts to zip and unzip clothing.
