That's a very good idea!  I had the hardest time trying to teach a kid how to tie his shoes even while doing hand over hand with him.  Step by Step pictures is a great idea.

Excellent! What a fantastic idea. (I seriously hadn't realized there were different ways to tie shoes.....okay, I probably *knew* there were different ways, just didn't know any of them)

Anyway. I want to know...who took the pictures?!

My 13yr old son stood behind me & took the the pics over my head.  A little awkward, but it worked. 

As for the different ways, the main two are "bunny ears" (the one I used here) & "loop, swoop & pull" (the one I personally use, but all the websites said is harder to learn).  I didn't realize I'd have to pick a method before I could start teaching DD - good thing I did research! ;-)

That's a really terrific idea!  I'll have to remember it when my nephew gets to be that age. 

btw: is your daughter's name Rylee?  I have a friend named Rylee and I thought she was the only one out there with that spelling!

I learned this way and my mom told me a story about making two bunny ears and going into the cave.  I cannot believe I can remember this still .... off to be scared.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

This is a great idea!!!  I worked in a kindergarten last year and the kids did not know how to tie their shoes!!!  All of their shoes have either Velcros or slip ons.  Incredible... No pacifiers all "pottie" trained but they couldn't tie their shoes all of them are from 3 yrs up.  You should patent this.lol
