If you have a button jar you will know how much joy this brings to children; they love to sort them, play with them, and make things with them. So, I’ve compiled a list of fun button crafts and activities that they will love.
Thanksgiving Button Place Cards
Begin by cutting cardboard into rectangles and folding them in half to make tent cards.

Want even more button fun?
- Have a button swap party – do button crafts, trade buttons with friends, make cupcakes topped with fondant buttons.
- Button art – create button artwork using buttons in all shapes and sizes. This is especially good if you have buttons that look like animals, food, or other objects.
- Make clay buttons – roll out balls of modeling clay (the kind that can go in the oven), cut it with a small circle cookie cutter, and using a plastic needle poke two holes in the center. Bake in the oven according to the clay package directions.
- Button contest – put all of the buttons in a big container and have a race to see who can get the most of the same color into a separate bowl.
- Button math – sort and count buttons according to size and shapes. Switch out counters for buttons for math homework and activities.
