Tie Buddies! The Practical Gift!

My oldest is about to turn 6 and we are learning to tie shoes! You see, he wore shoes with Velcro closures and we never had much opportunity to tie shoes. It's really hard to find children's shoes that tie! It was a little intimidating for him to look down and see a tangle of shoestrings. But we are making progress thanks to Tie Buddies! Tie Buddies takes the bunny ears and loops out of tying. After your child gets the hang of it, remove one of the Tie Buddies and allow your child to practice. Pretty soon, your child will be able to tie shoes without help! Tie Buddies is a practical gift for any boy or girl! Perfect for Birthdays and perfect for Easter Baskets too! Choose from pink or blue. Help your child master this skill with less frustration. Tie Buddies makes it easy and they are fun to use! It has certainly made a difference to us! Tie Buddies is giving away one set to a lucky reader! To enter, leave a comment telling me how old you were when you learned to tie your shoes! For a second entry, follow me or let me know you are a follower! US residents only! Giveaway ends April 15, midnight! Good Luck!

I know I knew how to tie my shoes when I went to kindergarten so I'd say probably 4 or 5. Thanks for the chance.

I was five when I learned. My aunt taught me pretending the lace was a rabbit going around the tree and into his hole...worked
