Buttons on a String
In this ziplock bag, there were three long colorful strings (red, yellow and purple)
There were also a variety of large, colorful multi-shaped buttons. About 20 total.
The instructions read, place all of the buttons in the middle 0f the table. There were several ways that it listed to have the child "group" the buttons.
I had Wyatt pick all the red ones out.
Walker the purple ones.
And so on, until each color had a pile.
Then we put them back and I had Walker place all the triangles in a pile.
Wyatt - the circles.
Walker the squares, and so forth.
Then after we sorted them several times in different ways each child placed the string through the buttons and made a necklace.
It was fun.
And not messy, always a bonus.
And Walker got to practice some fine motor skills (which we never do)
