    I have done the cardboard idea with 9 year olds- they had to sketch the shoe they were wearing on to the cardboard. They really enjoyed the activity and it was a great way to teach a tricky skill. I guess it would depend on the personality of the child

    I bribed DS with $20 and he managed the art of tying laces in all of about 5 minutes...lol.

    He's happy to wear lace up shoes now apparently.

    Haven't had to teach my own kids yet but I distinctly remember learning right before I started kindy, because my school had a uniform policy that specified 'lace-up shoes'. I think that was the first time I really wore shoes with laces and I remember my dad teaching me
