As any parent knows, teaching little ones how to tie their shoes can be difficult (for kids and grown-ups). And while many rely on the trusty bunny-ear method, one 5-year-old is taking the internet by storm with his genius hack.

Meet Colson, an adorable kid (with a loose tooth, FYI) who wants to teach you a superduper simple way to say goodbye to Velcro shoes for good.

Here’s how it works: Colton sticks the ends of his laces into the top two holes of his shoesbefore crossing the resulting loops with each other and tying them together twice. He then pulls the ends out of the holes and—voilà—his shoe is tied.

The video was shared on the Love What Matters Facebook page, where it has been viewed nearly 6 million times. Hey, that’s no small…feet (sorry, we had to).
