Unless a person has children or works with children, it is easy to forget how hard it is to learn how to tie shoelaces, but the EZLeaps Shoe Tying Tool hopes to make the task much easier. It is essentially a plastic card with strategic cutouts that show the child how to arrange the laces in order to tie them successfully every time.

Created by Eileen Sloan, a first grade teacher, the EZLeaps Shoe Tying Tool helps develop "a skill she says they weren't particularly keen on learning to do for themselves," according to Fast Co Design. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, the EZLeaps Shoe Tying Tool is also a fun accessory for kids.
