This is why I never teach my kids to tie their shoes!
Don't tie your shoes!
Okay, I taught my kids to tie a bow, but not their shoes.
This is why.
This is my favorite life hack.
It's cheap and comes in white or black.
I mostly use black.
Unravel the elastic and thread one end through the lace holes.
We usually use a pair of pliers to help ease it through.
Put the shoe on. This has to be worn so you can tighten it just the right amount.
Trim the ends and lightly singe the edges with a lighter to keep the ends from fraying.
We do this on every pair of shoes.
It is great for running shoes. They work fabulously on church shoes.
They are the reason I don't teach my kids to tie their shoes!
And why I don't tie my shoes!
