Isn't it amazing that many young children know how to navigate the web, but they do not know how to tie their shoes.  Allison Caspers of Oak Grove Lutheran gets a suitcase and puts an old shoe in it along with one of the poem below.  Each night a child gets to take home the suitcase and practice tying the shoe.  When they have completed their “Shoe Tying Journey” they receive a PASSPORT OF ACCOMPLISHMENT for learning to tie their shoes.

1-2-3-4 – Tying Shoes
Let’s get ready to tie your shoes. 
Over and under.  Now, what to do?   (Pull strings tight.)
1. Make a loop that looks like a tree.  (Make a loop with right string.)
2. The other string is a rabbit you see.  (Hold up left string.)
3. The rabbit goes around and in a hole.  (Take left string around loop and stick
in the hole.)
4.  Pull the loops tight and there is your bow!  (Take both loops and pull.)

Tying Shoes Version 2
Take the 2 strings                                (Make loops with each string.)
And make two bunny ears.
Over and under
And a knot will appear.                           (Tie loops in a knot.)
Pull the ears tight
And what do you know?                          (Pull loops.)
You’ve tied your shoes
And there is your bow!
