Tying shoes requires fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and resilience. It’s considered a “self-help” skill that takes time to master. Give children an opportunity to be successful! When they need to get out the door, start a little early, and give them time. Sit with them and encourage perseverance. Offer the shoe lacing activity for fun practice play—leave it out on the shelf, with other lacing activities to play with!
