Step 1: We go to our old friend Joe at Blue's Clues for the Shoe Tying Square Dance.
Step 2: Purchase shoe lace shoes for church. It takes the pressure off of having to do it everyday and allows us a special time together to work quietly on the skill.
Step 3: Dust off the Melissa and Doug Basic Skills puzzle. They do not sale this version anymore. I bought it when TS was a year old, which seems just like yesterday to me. He loved just putting the puzzle pieces in place.
Step 4: Start with a big shoe, his dad's. Color each side of the shoelace a different color to cut down the confusion as he masters the steps.
Step 5: Practice .....Practice
