When looking for advice on how to teach a child to tie their shoelace, who better to turn to than a fellow five-year-old.
In a video shared on Facebook by Colton’s mum, Ashley Lillard, Colton says there is "a new way to tie shoes" and it’s genius!
"Coolest shoe tying trick ever!" Lillard wrote. "Posting to help anyone who is struggling like we were!"
The post has since been shared over 100,000 times with many praising Colton for sharing this nifty trick.
But Colton says he can’t take all the credit; after all, it was his friend, River, who taught him the technique at school.
