It was quite neat to see her fine motor skills work. She was meticulous, ensuring the ends were both even. Then she looped the two together the laces and pulled.This child is only 4 years old and I was so amazed to see that she could tie her shoes.
I was so impressed that I asked her if she could lace up my rain boots. She laced up the boots in no time.
Then just before going home I walked by the science area. I noticed the same little girl putting bows into another child's hair. She was using the same technique as she did with her shoes.
"LOOK I put a bow in her hair!!"
This child emerged her lace tying skills onto another technique. Bringing her knowledge of making bows into hair tying.
