Here's my homemade shoe tying aid. If your kid can tie a knot - she can tie her shoes! Guaranteed. It works just like the Tie Buddies, but costs nothing.
Preparation. Make a simple loop knot in the middle of each shoe lace.
To tie the shoes
Step one: hold the shoe laces by the aglets (plastic or metal sheath at the end of the laces), tie a regular knot.
Please, leave a comment whether or not this worked for your child.
