How did you teach you child to put socks on

DD has been putting her own socks since she was 1, it was the first thing she learnt to do actually, well after taking her nappy off
So I'm not really sure how to teach that one sorry.
She is the same age and can get herself fully dressed but has trouble getting her tops off

My 3 year old DD has learnt by putting on patterned ones first, that have a picture on the outside. She now (nearly always) gets it right without asking "dis way mummy"

Agree with getting ones with pictures. Doesn't matter where as long as they all work the same, ie: pic on top. If you can't find ones that have the same location, just buy multiples of one. Will make pairing up easy!
We also talked about the shape of the sock and the shape of her foot so she learned that toes go at the pointy end and heel goes at the round end. Even draw around his foot (on the side, ankle down) so it makes the same shape.

Most of his socks have the shapes he gets off to a good start with putting his toes in bit gets lost with the rest of his foot.
He has trouble a little while ago with taking his shirt off but found a way that leaves my confused cause he spins around as he does it

I bought those socks that are white on top and coloured underneath so I could say "white on top and green on the bottom" and he would get the gist. I think socks was the last thing DS learnt to put on.
