Button Box

Do you have a button box at home or at your school?  
We have several.
I found this book The Button Box at our local library.
It proved to be great to go on one our play trays with a box of buttons.
 The children found various ways to play with it.
Matching buttons to the pictures.
 Checking out each page to see what attracts them.
 Making a spiral of buttons.
Or just running their fingers through the buttons.

Many of the grown ups reminisced about their mother's or grandmother's button box.
It was a wonderful opportunity for adult and child to do


  1. I wish I had a button box now! I just have a very small button bag. What a great literacy and sensory activity with so many other skills tapped as well. Thank you for sharing at WOTT!

  2. Hi. Visiting from WOTT. Great activity! I too wish I had more buttons. I remember this book from my teaching days! Fun!
