Did anyone play this game as a child? Someone has a button folded into their hands. They “pass” it around to other children who also have their hands folded. One lucky participant actually gets the button, and everyone has to guess WHO really has the button.
Simple? Yes. Did it keep us occupied? Absolutely! We may be too old for this game now, but if you’ve even dabbled in Pinterest or Google, you know that there are so many things you can do with buttons in your free time.
What lead me to sharing my research in this blog post? I had a mason jar full of buttons sitting on a shelf looking pretty, but otherwise useless. Not any longer! Here are a few of my favorites:
Make your own Paper Clip Button Bookmarks (from PBS Parents)
Try these Eco Chic Button Napkin Rings (from Think Crafts!)
Use this Perpetual Button Calendar all year long (from Make:)
Simple Button Wall Art (from Bright Star Kids)
