Did you know that Nordstrom offers free shoe tying classes for kids? Well now you do! The kids shoe department offers them on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 9:30 am (a half hour before the store opens).
My sister told me about this and told me that her kids went in not having a clue on how to tie their shoes and they left totally knowing how to. So, I took my kids and that was totally true for my son who is 8, but my 6 year old daughter didn't quite get it down, but came pretty close - she just needs a little more practice.
My son is tying his own shoes now all the time by himself. He is helping his friends and his sister tie their shoes, and feeling proud. When the class is over, the kids get a fun little print-out with the shoe tying instructions (see picture), a fun prize bag, and a balloon too.
This was totally worth it. Just call your local Nordstrom and ask for the kids shoe department o get your littles signed up for this fun, FREE, class.
