Using a foot massage bath

kid with feet in foot massager

A foot massage bath is a nice apparatus to use. Your child will become more aware of his feet. After having used the foot massage bath he should walk on bare feet for a while. Because he is more aware of them, he will probably use them more properly. 

Standing on your feet can improve by this method. Some children already enjoy the vibrations of the bath, other children like it more with water in it and if necessary some bath foam. Only use it when your child enjoys it. Another possibility of course is playing with his hands in it.
