Did your child learn to tie shoelaces?
At what age do you think they should be able to do them?

DS1 was 9 blush Think that's probably late but he got there in the end.

DD could go through the process when she was 5.5 but took another 6 months or so before they were tight enough to last.

It probably depends on your child's fine motor skills so the earlier they can hold a pencil properly and other activities the earlier they'll be able to tie them I expect.

Depends on the child.

One of mine got it at 4yo, the other didn't get it until they were 6yo.

Interestingly they were the other way round for learning to ride a bike.

In my experience, they don't really learn until they have a pair of lacing shoes and have to learn.

Roughly 5/6 but only because she was desperate not to have trainers with Velcro again.
