Practice Buttoning with Felt Sandwich

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I was inspired by making the buttoning pizza to make more food that requires buttoning. I see a whole line of fun button food in my future. Here is a sandwich that I made. It is very similar to the button snake and button oreo that I made, but it has more layers like a sandwich.

The layers that it has are bread, meat, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and bread on the top. The kids enjoy making the sandwich by buttoning the sandwich toppings on. It is great for pretend play.

One difference from the button snake is that the ribbon is much shorter, so it can be more challenging to get the button in the holes. The ribbon is sewn onto the bottom piece of felt bread.

    These are great ideas. I have seen the sandwich and the pizza (and of course the snake) on ABilitations website but never thought of making it myself!
