This set of 30 large colorful plastic buttons is perfect for children.  These make perfect large math counters and are a great way to teach colors and shapes.  This bag has an equal mix of 10 colors!

Uses:

  • Sort by color
  • Sort by shape
  • String like beads with included lace
  • Use as math counters.  Ask the child to "show me what 5 looks like"
  • These buttons are also perfect for children's sewing and craft projects.
  • Children love dropping objects into containers.  These buttons work perfect for this.  You could even cut a slit in a coffee can or similar lid!

Includes:

  • You get 30 buttons. 3 of each of the 10 colors and 8 shapes.  Button size is 1 3/4 in
  • Shapes included:  Square, heart, oval, circle, scalloped circle, triangle, star and hexagon.
  • One lace

 

Highlights:

  • This set is ideal over other button sets because it includes 3 of each color so children can actually sort by color (you will not get a bag with only one red button for instance)  There are 10 colors in this bag including 2 shades of blue.  
  • You will also get at least 3 of each shape (some shapes such as heart and star are used by 2 colors so you will have more than those, but still at least 3 of each color.
  • These buttons are quite large at 1 3/4"

 

Drawbacks:

  • The holes on the buttons are too small to fit a plastic threading needle through.
  • Although the buttons are huge, the manufacture does include that these are for ages 3+
