When your child is a toddler, begin working on activities that require your child to use the small muscles in his/her hands.  As he/she progresses through their development, continue presenting challenging fine motor tasks. Make shoe-tying practice a fun and enjoyable time for your child and only work on shoe-tying for 15-20 minutes at a time. By using flat, long laces to teach your child to tie his/her shoes will help them hold them better.

Learning to tie your own shoe laces is a tricky fine motor skill for children, but with patience and practice parents can teach their child to tie their own laces. I found this great activity over at krokotak.com, there is a free template for you to print out and get practicing with your child, click the link below….
