It’s not easy to teach every child how to tie their shoes. Some learn quickly but others can’t seem to make the loops and tie them. I’ll admit that when I taught my older daughter to tie her shoes it was very easy. She found a pair of sneakers she wanted and so she decided that she needed to learn to tie them so I would buy them for her. My younger daughter tried once and then decided she just wanted sneakers with Velcro. And then I found a great solution to help children tie their shoes more easily while still leaving them with a feeling of accomplishment- Loopeez! Loopeez are a shoe-tying aide that speeds up the learning process and eliminates frustrations. Loopeez come in several fun designs for girls and boys and are easy for small fingers to master. Loopeez are also a great therapeutic shoe tying aide that are also great for children and adults with autism, stroke victims and for anyone in any type of therapy and rehabilitation. Loopeez are so easy that they can even be used with one hand for people with missing limbs, weak limbs, etc. Shoes with Loopeez stay tied longer and keep laces from dragging on the ground and being tripped on.
There are 5 easy steps to tying shoes with Loopeez.
1. Start by crossing the laces and pulling tightly just like you would without Loopeez.
2. Push one side of each twist through one of the holes in the Loopeez.
3. Pull the laces through into 2 loops or “bunny ears”.
4. Cross the 2 loops or “bunny ears”.
5. Pull one bunny ear over the other one and pull through to complete the bow.
Loopeez also sells unique bi-colored shoelaces that help with figuring out where each “loop” goes. Genius!
