I've been trying, and my five-year-old just isn't catching on. I've tried with her coat on her body, I've tried having her zip up my coat while it's on me, and I've tried her zipping her coat while it's lying flat on the floor. No luck. Maybe it's an eye hand problem, since we've had no success with tying shoes, either. Or maybe it's a blind/sighted thing, but her dad can see, and he's had no luck with either task. And it isn't stubbornness because she wants to learn, although now that she has tried and failed repeatedly she just gives up after two seconds.

Practice, practice, practice. Like everything else kids need to learn to do on their own.
