There's all sorts of shoelace helpers on the market, but as you all know by now, we're more of the diy type folk. So when we came across this shoe lace tying technique — we ran to find the first pair of shoes with laces to try it out! So the first pair of shoes we found might have been adults, but the trick still works none the less (and we could potentially leave the knots in for good). By tying two additional knots, one at the end of each lace, you successfully eliminate the need to "loop" before swooping and pulling.
You can read more about the technique over at sestrenki, the blog of Ohdeedoh reader Nudik. There's a few more photos of things in action and we promise it will save you and your little ones a great deal of headache!
