Shoe Tying 101

Yes, sadly our family has succumbed to the age of Velcro, and our kids don't know how to tie their shoes. Not that we haven't tried, we just haven't been successful yet. But I am on a mission to teach both Mr. Zander & The Princess to tie their shoes before the start of school.
My recipe for shoe tying lessons
a child's shoe box
a shoe traced on the top and colored in
10 holes poked (5 on each side of the traced shoe)
1 shoe lace (laced through the holes and one side colored)
Tape the box Shut
2 eager children ready to learn
