I had absolute no idea what to do yesterday afternoon, so we opened our craft drawer, and found some buttons, some chenille, glue and some eyes…
Since it is Spring time, I thought about creating something for the garden. (We do not have any garden, but that doesn’t matter…it is the idea, right? 🙂
So…it could be some flowers…a butterfly…a Easter bunny…
But while I was thinking, my daughter was already very busy putting the buttons in the chenille stem.
We ended up making this beautiful creatures!
Take a look!
This activity is a great way to practice hand and eye coordination,
concentration and fine motor skills, a skill needed for writing later on.
This morning my daughter woke up and the first thing she did was asking for more buttons….I could only find these ones. She made this beautiful cat!
