Adorable tutorial garners mass appeal because it's simple and it works
Having trouble teaching your child to tie his or her shoes? The traditional way can be confusing, but one little boy has a method with instructions that may be simpler for a child to understand.
In a video posted on Facebook by Ashley Lillard, Colton - who introduces himself with this adorable line, “I’m 5, and I have a loose tooth” - showed how to tie the "new" knot.
Does that sound confusing? Watch Colton do it and explain it all in the video below.Here’s how it’s done: Place one end of the shoelace into one of the top lace holes to construct a loop. Do the same to the other side. Then, take both loops in both hands, cross them, and then pull one of the loops under the other, and then repeat. Once complete, the lace is tied and double knotted.
While the video of Colton has been widely seen, he does give credit where it’s due. “I learned that from my friend, River,” he said.
The video has been liked more than 29,000 times and shared more than 200,000 times on Facebook.
