How can I teach my kids to tie their shoes?

The Shoelace Box

To help kids master shoelace tying, decorate a shoe box to look like a shoe (kids love to do this). Punch holes in the box (three on each side) and lace with an adult shoelace. The box is larger and easier to practice on than a kid-sized shoe, and less stressful since your kids can practice at times other than when everyone is rushing out the door.
