Shoe Tying Technique

Teaching children how to tie their shoes can be a daunting task. Children tend to feel frustration with it and often when you are trying to get leave or are in a rush, it can be easier to just tie their shoes for them. Shoe tying takes great fine motor skills that children need to develop over time and develop at different rates.┬áThis is why practice is so important. So here lies the question, what technique do I use? Should I use bunny ears, one loop or are their other techniques out there? I’ve noticed that the loops can be difficult to learn because it takes more fine motor skills. I have found a video that has a new technique that I feel would be pretty easy for children to learn who are struggling with loops.┬áDon’t get me wrong, what ever way that works for you and your child is great, I learned with the one loop method. I just feel that his could be a good resource for children who are struggle to tie their shoes with loops.
