There's 3 more weeks before my 5 year old son starts Kindergarten. I'm not really ready for it all but slowly I've been working down my list to help get my son prepared for Kindergarten.
One of the items on my list was to teach my son how to tie shoe laces. This is not a prerequisite for Kindergarten but my son has been doing a lot of firsts lately e.g. taking a shower by himself and riding his bike with the neighborhood kids and so I'm now moving him onto another new first. I picked up a pair of big boy sneakers with laces a few months ago for Kindergarten but had been procrastinating on teaching him as I couldn't quite figure out how to teach him without us both getting frustrated. I researched online to see what the best method would be and instead found a fun product called Tie Buddies™ that was designed by another Mom.
