To teach children the skill of tying, we begin with the bow frame. We break it down into many steps and it can take a while (!) to learn. Tying can be tricky but with the bow frame, the children can see what ribbon goes where. Several children are quite interested in this skill and we now have one child who can tie! She is quite proud of herself and now other children ask her to tie their aprons for food prep or polishing work.
