Artist's Description

Who can remember the days when we taught our children how to tie their shoes?
If these old Jack&Jill shoes could talk, they would tell you they belonged to all my children!
I dedicate this pic to all four of them. ;-)
And just in case you really can’t remember, because you are too old now, here goes:
• Tell the child that he needs to make his shoe laces into “bunny ears.”
• First, he needs to secure a knot for the bunny’s head. Take the laces and cross them over to make an “X”. Then, pull one ear through the bottom of the “X” and pull tight.
• Say, “Now we need to give bunny some ears.” Loop the laces into “bunny ears”.
• Tell the child that now we need to “make the bunny ears tight so they don’t fall off”. Then make another “X” using the “bunny ears”, slide one “ear” under the “X” and pull tightly.
