make your own shoe-tying practice board: adult pre-draws the shoes and pre-cuts the holes for the shoelaces to go in (poke a screwdriver through the cardboard). Then, child will color the shoes and poke the laces through the holes to practice.
Gotta remember this one as soon as Colin starts playing with cars for more than 30 seconds at a time! :) a new track everyday and all you need is masking tape and some Hot Wheels... keep the kids busy forever! @Jennilyn Reynolds, thought you'd like this!
