We have bags of buttons in our craft bins at home. My daughter loves to play with them. She separates them by color & lines them up into rows. She studies the different sizes & textures on the buttons & if I give her a glue bottle & some paper, her face lights up. Last night when she saw me pull out the buttons & construction paper, her face did just that. She pulled up her chair & sat down next to me.
“Mama, what are you doing?”
“Making a gumball machine. You can decorate it with your buttons”
She was thrilled.
Button Gumball Machine Craft
Cut out the shapes to make your gumball machine out of construction paper & glue down to another piece of paper with a glue stick.
Draw & color in the dispenser & dial with crayon.
Instruct your child to glue the buttons into the white circle.
She even named her buttons as she placed them. The purple button was Mai & the brown one was her friend Henry.
