Button the Princess

Therapeutic Corner:

Buttoning is a bilateral coordination skill as it requires both hands to do work simultaneously. Many children have difficulty with this task so I break it down in a fun and easy way. Teaching children how to manage buttons should be done first on a surface that can be placed in front of them and once that is mastered, it can be taught on items that are on their own body such as a shirt. (This is a more difficult task because it removes the visual component of this task and relies on tactile skills).

The Activity:

I used felt to create the face of a princess. I cut facial features out of felt and sewed buttons in the correct spots. This activity is fun for girls. You can also purchase it here at MissMancy’s Shop.
