Toddler Activites: Button Sorting

The other day as I was cleaning I came across some inserts from chocolate boxes that were laying around leftover from the holidays.  As I was getting ready to toss them in the garbage I thought maybe LK would like to play with them for a while.  I got out our jar of buttons and poured them on a jelly roll pan (using it as a tray to keep the buttons somewhat contained).  Then I had him sort the buttons into the chocolate insert.  It kept him occupied for a little while and while he wasn't all that interested in sorting them he would find matching buttons and put them together.

Of course, buttons are a choking hazard, so if you do this be sure to supervise your child.
