Taking your shoes off or "Doffing" your shoes :)

 

This was such a cool, simple idea, also at a daycare in Norway…a way to easily take off your shoes. Basically the little ones could hold onto the blue rail while using the wood to help get their shoes off by sticking their heels in it. Kind of similar to a shoehorn, only more stable. Especially great when the floor was covered in wetness so they couldn’t sit down on the ground. I could totally see a large version of this being AWESOME for the elderly, and so simple to make! (Of course safety comes first, ENSURING it’s stable). Great for doffing shoes..to use OT terminology (we always said don or doff in our OT notes!)
