Bunny ears method worked for my son when he was a toddler.
Tell the child that he needs to make his shoe laces into "bunny ears."
First, he needs to secure a knot for the bunny's head. Take the laces and cross them over to make an "X". Then, pull one ear through the bottom of the "X" and pull tight.
Say, "Now we need to give bunny some ears." Loop the laces into "bunny ears".
Tell the child that now we need to "make the bunny ears tight so they don't fall off". Then make another "X" using the "bunny ears", slide one "ear" under the "X" and pull tightly.


I just keep repeating what we do everytime they get their shoes tied and make sure they can see my hands.
