Stringing Buttons

She's getting pretty good at stringing buttons now. The larger beads are trickier for her to do at times since the hole is different and she has to control the lacing string for a longer period. At any rate, she enjoys adding the items to the string and making necklaces. We also use the buttons and beads to sort by color and shape. Circle is still her favorite shape.

Reminder for my BabyCenter readers, you'll have to visit my blog in order to see the video.

Great idea! I love it! Where did you get the cool shape buttons at? What kind of "string" are you using?

I got them both at the teacher store. The string is a lace that is designed especially for doing this. They weren't very much. I'll see if I can find them again and send some to you.
