Buttons have always featured in my life – from my Grandma’s button box, to the big tin of buttons handed down to me from my own Mother – we played with them constantly – it was a real treat to be allowed to tip them all on to a tray and sort them into colours and shades!
Back in ‘the old days’ buttons were not quite as colourful as they are now – and you can pick up a pack of assorted buttons quite cheaply – which means that you can get up to all SORTS of creative fun with them!
Let’s have a look at this fab DIY Button Art Tree from teach kids art stuff – we really love the movement in this tree, sort of Bonsai like! and also the use of several shades of just one colour – a great craft for old and young alike! What a great craft activity for Granny to do with the kids too! click here for more ideas teachkidsartstuff.com
