Button Tree Sequencing

I have been trying to organize my craft supplies, which is becoming a too current event! Sigh!
This time around, I discovered an abundance of buttons. So we decided to use them in our first Christmas activity of the season! I had 5 different colors each in six sizes.
Little Mister placed each color in size order. First, biggest to smallest. Then, smallest to biggest!
By removing one button per color, we created a perfect tree. 
Just add a star and Ta-Da!

    1. Oh! I just saw now that it's True Aim's Library link-up. I thought that the name being similar was just a coincidence. It's a good one, but my posts don't seem to get that much response. I don't bake or make crafts. I do, but I don't blog about them much. :) I'll try to link this week, especially since you liked my post.

    2. I have been co-hosting the link-up with her for almost 2 months. I am trying to get a little diversity in the mix. If I run across something I really like I extend an invite!
      Hope to see you there!
      Be blessed, Julie

  18. This is great. We recently did a Christmas tree button craft with coffee filters and green buttons - mainly just letting him put the buttons however, but we did do one tree in which we placed the buttons from smallest to biggest. When I share my craft I will definitely direct people to this post as well. Such a great, fun learning activity.
