Button Practice

This past week the weather has been much cooler so I pulled out Aiden’s fall clothes, many of which have buttons.  Since Aiden is always asking me to help him button his shirts I decided he could use some button practice!  When I saw the button snake that Counting Coconuts made I decided to make one ~ with a fall twist!  I guess ours is a fall leaf snake. 

I attached buttons to a piece of ribbon and cut leaves out of felt, adding a slit for the button.

  He was so proud of himself after he buttoned on all of the leaves!

ahhhh those leaves are adorable! Love it! We've done the button snake before with plain squares but what a neat twist to add leaves or different shapes! =)

What a great idea. I have seen the button snake on counting coconuts too. I will have to get my greative ideas going and see if I can come up with something like this for me reschooler. Thanks for the CUTE ideas. Just as a side note, my son and I will be using your chameleon printables for our C week (probably in 2 weeks).....thanks so much - I can't wait to use them!

I saw it when she did it, but the leaves are much cuter, and I still need to make it.

Thanks for the great post. I will be making one of these this evening. I bought supplies to make a button board I saw months ago and never got around to it. This I can do. Love your blog!
