A Lifeskill Tutorial – Learn How to Tie Shoelaces

A Lifeskill Tutorial - Learn How to Tie Shoelaces

When I was a child, most kids learned to tie their shoes in the first year or so of school – often younger. The average age was 4. I have noticed that this has changed quite rapidly here in Australia. Next time you are in a shoe shop, have a look around. Laces have disappeared in many of the ranges for kids under 7. When I visit schools I notice that most students from grade 3 and below are wearing velcro shoes.

After working through the steps with Miss 5 regularly over the last few weeks she has persisted in learning this skill and mastered it this very weekend. To celebrate she asked to create her own tutorial video. Enjoy!
