My kids learned to tie shoes at the age of 5 and I would tie one lace and make them tie the other.

My son was a little slow at first. He had a really hard time getting the laces confused. We used these http://www.tyingisasnap.com/ and that helped considerably.

We used the tree and bunny trick and with the two colors it worked great. By 5 he knew how to tie but was not very good at getting them tied tight.

Hope this helps.

Kids can learn at any time as long as they want to learn. I got a book that looked like a shoe and had laces on it for my son to learn I started with the two bunny ears and taught him that one once he had it I taught him the bunny goes around the tree and back into its hole.
