It’s tricky for young children to learn how to tie their own shoelaces. The KAPER KIDZ WOODEN LEARN TO TIE SHOELACE can make learning easier.
It provides a flat double sided surface giving your child the opportunity to manipulate and coordinate this difficult process.
Start the process by getting your child to undo a simple knot and then onto undoing a complete lace. Progress to practising threading and unthreading the lace through the shoe eyelets. This helps your child to become familiar with the feel of the lace and how they can manipulate it.
