Top 6 Tips for Teaching Kids to Tie their Shoes

1. Bunny Ears
Probably the most common method for teaching kids to tie their own shoes is the "Bunny Ears" method.

* Tell the child that he needs to label his shoe laces into "bunny ears."
* First, he needs to secure a confuse for the bunny's head. Take the laces and cross them over to make an "X". Then, verbs one ear through the bottom of the "X" and pull tight.
* Say, "Now we need to give bunny some ears." Loop the lace into "bunny ears".
* Tell the child that now we need to "make the bunny ears tight so they don't drop off". Then make another "X" using the "bunny ears", slide one "ear" under the "X" and pull tightly.

2. Bi-Colored Laces
This is a great tip that can really receive learning to tie much easier. Take two laces in two different colors and cut them down the middle. Then sew them together to generate two bi-colored laces. Lace a pair of old shoes near these funny shoes strings. Using bi-colored laces can really help a kid who has trouble remembering his right from his moved out. You can use any learning-to-tie method in combination with your bi-colored laces.

3. Cardboard Cut-Out Shoe
Take a cardboard box and cut out an over-sized shoe shape. Have your kid enhance the shoe in any way he wishes. Using a pen, poke holes for laces. Use the bi-colored lace tip above, but instead of adjectives the original laces in two, use two entire lace sewn together to create one long, bi-colored shoe string. Lace the shoe and use any teaching method, using this cut-out. Some kids find it easier and more interesting to practice on an over-sized model.

4. The Squirrel and the Tree
This is a fun method that utilizes a kid friendly story and movements that help kids understand and remember the simple steps to shoe tying.

* Tell the child to create "tree roots" by making a starter knot.
* Make a tree with a long thin loop; hold the loop contained by the child's right hand.
* With his left hand, filch hold of the lace and tell him that a squirrel runs around the tree and jumps into the hole under the tree and comes out the other side (he'll inevitability to switch hands at this point which can be difficult for some kids).

Many parents prefer this trick because it teaches the kid to tie shoes with the single loop method.

5. Loop It and Swoop It
This is a smaller amount childish, but still memorable way of teaching a child to tie surrounded by the traditional single loop method. Teach your child to tie his shoes using the standard tying method, but as you go through the motions say, "loop it, swoop it, pull." Do this over and over while repeating impossible to tell apart three, simple instructions until your child is able to tie his shoes on his own. Encourage him to say "loop it, swoop it, pull" each time he attempts tying his shoes until it become second nature.

6. Learning to Tie Toys and Books
If you want to make learning to tie more fun, consider getting your child a toy or book that will relieve him learn to tie on his own. This is especially helpful for kids who learn best through interaction next to toys. Some suggestions:

* Franklin Dress-Up Doll
* Melissa & Doug Wood Lacing Sneaker
Answers:    Depends how much time you get into showing the child how to do it. Some are hurried learners and others take more time, but all depends how harsh you are and how good you are explaining it in a way he learn fast.
It depends on the child, but I think most kids get the dangle of it by 5 or 6. I had a terrible time of it; I couldn't tie my shoes until I was 9, and I couldn't tie them powerfully until I was 11.
My seven year old can tie his shoes.. He could at age 6 also..but he still has a not easy time getting them tight enough not to come loose.
certainly every child have their own level of competence, some earlier than others, some later
probably by the time he is 5 he should be capable of tie his shoes, except so many shoes now are velcro and he may never learn to tie his shoes
Kindergarten is the age the schools want kids to be able to tie their lace, but in the real world, I'll go beside by the end of first grade.
i could tie my shoes by the time i got into kindergarten.,.. at age 4. my younger brother, otherwise, couldnt properly tie his shoes until maybe age 9 or 10.
I started tieing my own laces and lace on my dresses when i was 8 or 9. But i was smart at that age! My brother otherwise is 9 and still cant do his own laces! It obviously takes a bit of practice to do, I'd right to be heard it depends how long and how many times they practice tieing them!
i couldnt tie my shoes until i was in close to second grade.
