Color Matching

I'm sure by now, you know that I love buttons and I try to use them in as many crafts as I can! Today's simple game was made up from another border, that I cup up and put on a ring. This is the perfect on the go activity that I can keep in our Busy Bag and just toss one in my purse too! I have a small little bag on the ring that holds 1 button in each color that matches the cards and all he has to do is match them up!!

It's a simple activity that still manages to entertain all the kids when we are desperate, because my 5 year old can practice his spelling of the colors, while my 6 year old plays 'teacher' and has the boys do the spelling and matching work.

I, too, love buttons. My daughter, when she was young, was very into the American Girls. Our homeschool group did a literature series once. We found out that collecting buttons and making them into necklaces was a Victorian girls favorite past-time. And they were used sort of like tokens of friendship. Just thought I would share a little tidbit! :) Cheers!
