Teach Them to Tie Their Shoes with Tie Buddies! (GIVEAWAY)


I have something embarrassing to tell you. My twins just turned 7 years old, and they still don’t know how to tie shoes! Thanks to Velcro, slip-ons, and the morning rush when I just tie the laces myself, my boys have never learned how to tie a shoe. Now that they’ve gone so long without tying shoes, they’re resistant to change. So, it’s time to try a new approach.

That approach is called Tie Buddies! Kids always have the hardest time with the “loops” when it comes to tying laces, so Tie Buddies get rid of the loops so kids can more easily maneuver the laces. Once they’ve mastered shoe-tying without loops, they can more easily move on to tying normally. These cute little tabs are easy to attach to the laces, and they come in both boy and girl versions.


When my boys tried tying shoes without Tie Buddies, it was always a disaster. They could never seem to keep the laces in a loop while getting them crossed. The loops would come undone, and the boys got easily frustrated. But now that they’re using Tie Buddies, they’re really starting to get the hang of shoe-tying! As their confidence grows, I know they’ll be tying shoes on their own in no time.

If your child is having trouble learning to tie his or her shoes, I suggest you pick up some Tie Buddies to help out. This is a great mom-invented product that makes the shoe-tying process much less frustrating for kids! Check out Tie Buddies at the links below.
