Default A clever idea for dressing the ends of childeren's shoelaces athome

Do you have a clever trick for dressing children's shoelaces?

I snip the ends, dab with white glue, and then strangle about
a half inch from the end with a few loops of common thread.

After the glue dries, I smear the half inch end with Crest toothpaste.

That hardens into a usable shoelace tip.
