Button Gumball Machine Craft

Button Gumball Machine Craft

 

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.

She even named her buttons as she placed them. The purple button was Mai & the brown one was her friend Henry.
