  • Hold a dandelion fuzz ball, or a ribbon, and have him blow on it through his mouth. Then have him blow on it through his nose. Then show him how to hold one nostril and blow from the other. Then hold tissues, and so forth. Good luck! :)

  • You just have to keep practicing, most kids get the hang of it at around 3-5 yrs old. Good luck.
