Even thought Eva might be a little to young to get the concept of tying her own shoes it isn’t too early to get her excited about it. Tie Buddies (http://www.tiebuddies.com) slip onto shoe laces and help children hold loops together. With Tie Buddies your child can hold the devices and start to learn the essential skill of tying their own shoes. As they get more confident and develop the muscle memory to tie their shoes you can remove one of the tie buddies and then as they get more confident and proficient you can remove the other.
I put the Tie Buddies on Eva’s shoes and tried them out. She wasn’t that excited about tying her shoes but that is because she is so young. Eva also does not like to use shoes or socks for that matter. She really likes having what she calls, “nakey feet”. I think that as she gets older these will be perfect to help her learn to tie her shoes. She did like that the Tie Buddies had little fairies and magic wands on them. I tried to tell Eva a story about the fairy chasing after her runaway wand to illustrate how to tie the laces but she just wanted her shoes off. I think that with time and interest she’ll love using these Tie Buddies. I think I need to catch her on a day when she is interested. At least when she is interested I’ll be ready with the Tie Buddies. She’ll be tying those laces in no time.
