Here’s another great way to entertain a 22-month-old. Buttons. Lots of buttons.

V loves to pour them from one container to another, look at them individually, sort them, etc. These really fascinate her. There must be 60 or 70 of them and she loves to look for the oval-shaped button, because there is only one of those.

But mostly she loves to pour them on herself and then pick them up in handfuls to return them to the bowl.

I went to a craft show this past Saturday and bought a sandwich bag of various colored and various shaped buttons for a project of mine for $1. I think this has got to be the cheapest form of entertainment for V yet.
