Getting those squirmy little fingers into gloves?

Any tricks? My daughter wants "big girl gloves" instead of mittens now, but it takes forever to help her get them on because two fingers end up in one slot, and when she tries to get one out, all of her fingers curl up and we have to start over. Maybe I'm missing the easy answer?

  • Not easy but I have 4 yo spread his fingers after I out the wrist of the glove over them, maneuver the fingers in each hole then thumbs last. Fortunately it's relatively warm here and he doesn't wear them often!

  • Tell he when she can put them on herself she can get gloves. Besides, mittens are warmer anyway.
