We take no credit for originality here - this was an idea in a Button craft book she has - but we thought we'd share the results. We used the buttons to make decorative tacks for their bulletin boards. We used some good old E6000 glue to attach the buttons to flat-headed tacks. They turned out pretty cute! She made a set for her sister (top) and then decided to make some to go with her room.
And in other bursts of creativity, my 6-year-old was inspired to do some crafting as well. Feeling impatient waiting for me, he took it upon himself to find something he could do on his own. He found his sister's generic water bottle and added some flair: sparkly smiley face stickers and the words Cath Rocks, Go Cath. I'll try to see if I can get him to put together a tutorial.
