When I was ready to do my post on Buttons and I came across this wonderful article which is much more detailed than my post was going to be but nevertheless - we are having fun with buttons and this is our picture journal
While my daughter was exploring our button collection we practiced counting, shapes, sizes, colors, sorting, threading
It is amazing how simple tools such as chenille stem and collection of buttons, can mesmerize a brain of a 3 year-old child.
Try it - it is so much fun!
Have a great day!
