    Shoe Tying Poems

    Bunny Ears

    "Bunny ears, bunny ears, playing by a tree.

    Criss-crossed the tree, trying to catch me.

    Bunny ears, Bunny ears, jumped into the hole,

    Popped out the other side beautiful and bold."

    Criss Cross Tying Shoes
    (tune: Splish Splash I was taking a Bath)

    Criss Cross and go under the bridge
    Then you got to pull it tight.
    Make a loop but keep a long tail
    That is how to do it right
    Then you take the other string
    and you wrap it 'round the loop
    Pull it through the hole
    Now you got the scoop

    Criss Cross and go under the bridge (this is where you tie the loops together)
    Now you made a Double Knot!
