Here is a simple activity for toddlers...
It builds coordination, it teaches them buttoning, and it is quiet.
This is how I made it...
I used my Accuquilt Go! fabric cutter to cut out a stack of flowers.
I cut them from wool felt using the Rose of Sharon cutter.
Wool felt will hold up better than cheaper acrylic felt.
Then, I tied the ends of a 10" piece of ribbon to the buttons.
Tie them in double knots, and heat the knots with a lighter to help them stay in place.
Then, I cut small buttonholes in the flowers.
Now your little one can thread them on and off of the ribbon!
This is a perfect toy for in church, or any quiet place!
