At the beginning of the school year, I began teaching my first grader how to tie his shoes. Then his teacher started assigning how to tie shoes as homework. We worked and worked on it and he finally got it! As we were trying so hard to teach him how to tie, I realized that only about 3 kids in my second grade class actually know how to tie their shoes. I personally hate tying shoes. I mean when you think about our kids walking around the school, on the playground, and in the bathroom with their shoelaces untied, and then our hands tying the laces over and over... EWWWW!!!! This morning I was browsing Pinterest and my partner in crime (Heather) re-pinned this video.
I had to give it a try. So I grabbed my daughter who is in Kindergarten and started teaching her. She learned in 5 minutes. I am so excited!!
Yay for us! We only have one more to teach and then we all know how to tie our shoes. I tried with my 4 year old but she gave up easily. Plus, I intend to start teaching my kids at school this on Monday. Hopefully, I soon won't be tying any shoes except my own!!!
Happy Shoe tying!!!
