Growing up, my mom had an organizing container with three or four dozen little drawers, all full of buttons. I remember spending hours pulling the little drawers out of the container, dumping out the buttons, and counting and reorganizing them. The memories (and the fact that I FINALLY have two children who keep non-edible objects out of their mouths!) inspired me to purchase a bulk buttons set and a plastic organizer (designed for jewelry beads, I believe). I’ll use some of the buttons on clothing and in crafts, and in the meantime Emma and Johnny are loving their new buttons – even if the buttons wind up less rather than more organized at the end of their play sessions!
