As the weather is cold, what better animal to work on buttoning than a penguin. I made this cute little felt penguin to have the kids practice their buttoning skills. The kids are always much more willing to practice fastening buttons when there is more interest to it that a strip of buttons.
The cute little button penguin has seven buttons to fasten, and is about 8-9 inches. You could make your own, or you can find it in the Therapy Fun Store.
