A Fun Summer Buttoning Ice Cream Cone

Print Friendly

I have been working on a bunch of different buttoning activities and thought I would share the ones that I made this week. I made some bananas that you can unbutton from the bunch, an ice cream cone to button the scoops on, some pancakes with syrup and butter, and some eggs that you button the yolk onto. They are all super cute and would be great fun for kids to play pretend with their food while working on their fine motor skills.


Last week I posted about some of the patterns of the felt food in order for you to make them yourself, and this week I have added a little video showing how to make the button oreo.

I love having the kids play with the felt food as it catches their attention in a fun way and they are working on motor planning skills as well as fine motor and visual perceptual and they don’t even realize it.

  1. […] To make your own, you just need three sizes of circles for the body, small circles for the buttons, a hat, rectangles for the arms, a small triangle for the nose, and a half circle for the mouth. Oh, and you also need a lot of buttons. I attach the buttons with ribbon, cut button holes, and hot glue around the button holes with a felt back on each piece. You can read about the process of making the button food here, including a little video about making the oreo. […]
