I made this felt button book for my 2-year-old daughter. Each page represents a different season. For each page there is a pocket full of little felt shapes she can fasten onto the page using the buttons. This way she can arrange and rearrange the pictures any way she wants. It was pretty easy and inexpensive to make. Just needed some felt, buttons, hot glue, cute printed fabric from the remnants bin, and some scrap denim and ribbon. She loves it. It's great to take on trips when I need her to stay occupied for a while.



The pages before they were sewn together (Fall is my favorite one):

Wow! What an adorable idea. I am a Montessori teacher of 3-6 year olds, and I sometimes make felt play sets to go with books we're reading that relate to units of study (like in the winter, I made a Tomten felt set.) This is a great idea, because it gets in the practical/fine motor skill of buttoning as well! If you don't mind, I'd like to make something like this for my class sometime!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

Thanks everyone! Autumn was so excited while I was making it. She kept saying "Is it done yet? Can I play with it?" hehe.

Thanks! I definitely don't mind if you use this idea. I'm sure the kids will love it.
