Teaching your toddler to lace, snap, button and zip!
The problem today is too much velcro shoes. Teaching your child as early as 2-3 to lace a shoe, will teach them to tie their shoes. Dress up dolls, or boards with snaps, buttons, zippers and laces is a great way for your toddler to learn these life skills. Wooden shoes with laces are on Amazon.com. Homemade busy boards with zipper, button, snaps, laces ect.., is a fun inexpensive way to teach your toddler to dress and lace their shoes. If you have a boy another great homemade busy board is latches, hinges, light switches ect. Get creative and teach your toddler old school life skills.. Forget the velcro!
