A daily activity to help your child have time with daddy or mommy before going to work. This will also help them learn how to tie shoes.

10 minutes
36 - 60 months
Group size
1 - 1 tots


  • 1 pair Laced shoes


  1. When you put your shoes on in the morning, ask your child for help with tying the laces.
  2. Allow them to play with the laces for a bit, then show them how they cross the laces to tie a knot.
  3. Once they understand the first knot, show them how to loop the laces. Loop both laces and then tie the loops in a knot.
  4. As they master the simple bow (two loops tied in a knot), move on to the more advance bow. One loop, around the loop and through the hole.
  5. This can be a fun daily tradition that they will slowly master.
