Quick Answer

Full Answer

This song promotes the "bunny ears" method of tying shoes. An alternative method of tying shoes is the "around the tree" technique. This is the method that involves making a loop, wrapping the other end around it and pulling it through.

Although sayings can help children remember what to do, practice is important for them to master the technique. An old shoe or a box with shoestrings laced through it should be effective.
