{Back to School} Great how to graphic on how to tie shoe laces

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This is a fantastic graphic showing different way’s to tie shoe laces, who knew there were so many stylish ways.  Great talking point for kids starting a new school. I usually tie as H shows.  Some of these would look really funky with multicoloured laces (but our school is black laces only).

Has anyone tried those elastic no tie laces?

Best laces for those just starting school, available at athletes foot, called one second laces. Already looped, pull the loops to loosen and the tabs to tighten. Won’t break like the elastic ones.

The way I do them is not on this list. I learnt from my Dad and I thought it was pretty bog standard!

I love this list though. It would have been fab in the 80’s when we had those made shoelaces that had patterns and words on them!!

Sorry to sound negative, but this graphic is how to lace shoes, not how to tie them. I was hoping for how to tie them. My ASD son’s feet are now too big for runners with Velcro, and we are finding it difficult to help him learn how to tie them. Does anyone have any resources for this? Thanks
