I love working on skills while working on skills, so using letters and buttons together is a perfect combination. We can work on fine motor and motor planning skills while talking about letters and the letters of the child’s name.
First you make a strip with buttons about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart. The letters are about 2 inches.
The plus about doing button tasks is that you use so many skills when doing them. I may not have a buttoning goal, but when working on button, I am working on visual motor skills, finger dexterity, motor planning, fine motor coordination, bimanual skills, and so much more.
