Much like the A-Team, I’m always finding random stuff around the house to make a plan come together. Today, we’re learning to tie shoes. Want to learn too? Here’s how!
- box cutter (or heavy-duty scissors)
- permanent marker
- Cut out a square of cardboard and place your shoes down on it. Trace around the sole of the first shoe loosely (be careful not to get marker on the shoe).
- Trace around the sole of the second shoe.
- Make a straight line on the cardboard for the toe design at the top of each shoe. Draw ten dots on each shoe outline for the lace holes.
- Lay the cardboard on top of thick carpeting and punch out the lace holes with the screwdriver (NOTE: Adults only!). Spin the screwdriver around to form the holes.
- Thread the shoelaces through the holes, then let your child learn to tie!
An added bonus is that your child can color the shoe-tying practice board too! Happy tying!
