Project #86: Button Matching Game
My four-year-old daughter loves playing with the colorful buttons she finds in my desk, so I came up with a little game she could do with them. This is a fun activity for preschool-aged children.
Place a variety of different color and size buttons face down on the copying plate of a color photocopier. If you have a picture in mind that you want to make with the buttons you can arrange them accordingly. I planned a simple flower picture, but you can do a train, robot, tree, etc.
Make a color photocopy of the buttons.
Complete your picture with a pen or marker.
Place the buttons that you used to create your picture in a small dish. Now your child is ready to play the matching game.
Play by placing the buttons from the dish onto the matching buttons in the picture.
