If You Give A Girl A Button

The next time you find yourself with bored or cranky children, I have the perfect solution:  Buttons!

A thrift-store friend brought me a bag of buttons he found for $1.50.  Amazing!  It held about 2 cups of buttons, maybe more.  I should have weighed it.

At the same time, Daughter had a neighbor friend over to play for a while until her parents got home.  This has happened just often enough lately that they were bored of playing the regular games and sort of wandering around.

“Girls, I have something for you to do.”

An hour-and-a-half later it was time for the neighbor to go home.  I had a mostly sorted pile of buttons, and they had a really good time.  Neighbor to Daughter, “Why do you have all the good stuff to do at your house?”

  1. what fun they must have had..i’m an organizer by nature and i would even have had fun..thanks for sharing that with us..i will think of daughter and her friend every time i find buttons in my sewing room!!!

  2. Isn’t is great that kids still love the simplest things? They come up with the coolest ways to play with them, too. A few years ago, I introduced my preschool class to dominos. One little boy said, “Look! Little videos!”
