Tidbit Tuesday: How to keep your children's laces tied?

So you buy your child a brand new pair of shoes...but every time you turn around you are tying the laces back together. You call yourself double knotting them, somehow they still come untied!!!

All day you hear "Can you tie my shoe"? In your mind your thinking .." I just tied them a second ago".

Well, I may have a solution for you. A candle.

Yes, try rubbing a candle on the new slippery laces , and the wax coating will help make the knots will stay put..

Try it out!!! We love to hear your thoughts. Have any tidbits you'd like to share...Feel free to comment below.




  1. As a teacher of five year olds, I hear this all day long. You bet I will be bringing a candle to school this week. :)

  2. Oh that's wonderful, tell me how it works up for you. I am a Prek Arts Enrichment Teacher, and I hear constantly as well.... :)
