Shout out to LJ Jeffery Mullen, who posted the inspiration for this project a few months ago. Here is the link to Jeffery’s project.

I made this for my 5YO granddaughter to practice tying her shoes. Nothing fancy—just 1/4” plywood,a black Sharpie and a 27” lace.

EDITED to include the link to the inspiration project.

Good idea Don. I may have to steal this for a certain 6 yo boy.

Pretty fancy, Don! I like the detail you put into it with the sharpie. Could also be done with a wood burner. Hmmm
Thanks, to you and Jeffery, for sharing!

It looks good. With this project a child can learn how to tie shoes and have fun doing it also.

Thanks for the positive comments! The real credit should go to Jeffery though. We are driving to Missouri on Thursday to give it to her—I hope it’s a big hit.
