Button Snake

Fine motor skills can be difficult to work on because when your child has trouble with them, anything that seems like work can cause refusal right away. This is a quick way for you to make a toy your child can use to learn buttoning and unbuttoning skills while playing. If you can sew a button, you can make this toy!
