|Elmo Bow Biters|
We all know that shoe laces easily come part, specially on little children, since they are always on the move, the problem comes when your child doesn't know yet how to tie them back and is off to school or the day care.
Here we have compiled a list of Tips to keep children's shoe laces tied
that I hope you find useful and will save a few children from scrapes on their little knees.
- When buying shoes with laces, aim for the ones that are flat, round laces tend to untie easily than the flat ones, also check that they have the tip plastic part at the end, since ti also makes them easier to tie.
- This great tip was passed on to me from a dear friend and I tested it my self and works wonders, when tying your kids shoe laces, spray on some water to make them damp and then tie them up, they will stay longer in place, try not to make them too wet, just a few spritz to make them damp will do the trick.
- Make a double knot, I know how hard it is to try to untie those knots once your kid wants to take the shoes off, so I only use the double knot when I know there will be a lot of movement involved, like on field days, the days they have PE or music, since they will be on the move all the time and are more likely to trip if the shoelaces get untied.
- And this is my favorite, get a couple of Bow Biters, this were very popular on the 80's and now are coming back, my kids love them and they look super cute on the shoes, they come with the faces of their favorite characters like Elmo or Cookie Monster from Sesame Street or Barney, Thomas the tank Engine and even Bob the builder. they are super easy to put on and take off and they really do what they are suppose to do, keeping the kids shoelaces tied while they play.
I hope that you will find this list useful and please let me know if you have another tip that is not included here o if you have a special way to tie the laces so they won't come off. I'd love to hear from you!
