A Little Song that May help the Process
The Shoe Tying Song (Spongebob)
You wanna learn how to tie your shoe?
It's a very easy thing to do.
Just sit on down and I'll give you the scoop...
What's that? It's called the loop-de-loop.
You put your laces in each hand,
go under and over again, take your loop-de-loop and pull,
and your shoes are looking cool.
You go over and back, left to right, loop-de-loop and hold 'em tight.
Like the bunny ears or a Christmas bow, lace 'em up and you're ready to go!
Take your loop-de-loop and pull, and your shoes are lookin' cool.
Spice Up Family Walks
Try rounding up the young ones for a nightly walk, and they squawk as if they're being asked to eat 3 pounds of brussels sprouts. What can you do? "Use your imagination--think like a kid and come up with ways to make family walks more fun," says exercise physiologist Bob Catalini. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Take along a ball and see how many times in a row you can pass it without the ball hitting the ground, suggests Catalini.
- Invest in pedometers for everyone and track your progress, says fitness author and lifestyle trainer Jyl Steinback. Keep the walks interesting by mapping imaginary adventures as you pretend to climb the Sears Tower (1,450 feet) or Mount McKinley (20,320 feet). FYI: One mile equals 5,280 feet.
- Take half-hour nature walks and hikes, says Steinback. Have children collect rocks, leaves, or flowers, or be on the lookout for birds and animals. Record their findings in a nature book to encourage future adventures.
