Holiday Gifts To Parents from Kids

Aren't these As Cute As A Button?  They were so easy to make and if you still need a gift for a grandparent, aunt, etc., for the holidays, you can make one in a snap.

I wish I didn't have to blur the kiddo's faces so you could see what cuties they are.  Here is one up close without a pic.

One of the reasons I loved this craft was because I didn't have to get the paint out!  Now I love a good painting project but my classroom doesn't have a sink so it's a pain in the neck.  Instead, the kids used markers to color in one side of each stick.  Worked great!  Kids picked out buttons and I glue gunned them on.  From start to finish- ENTIRE time for 21 kids...about 45 minutes!  I printed pics out on printer (4x6) glued on back.  Kids trimmed themselves. Then the kids wrote names and 2012 on back.  Easy peasy!

And I don't wrap for my kiddos.  Why would I when they can make these cute giftbags?

Green and White yarn, colored reinforcements, markers, lunch bags

I think I've finally found the gift I'll be making each year! 


  1. I made similar onaments for parents and they were so cute. I wish I did the photo because yours turned out great. Merry Christmas!


  2. Thanks! I'm sure your parents will love theirs just as much! Parents can always add a picture of they want. I think I have enough bittns to last for the next 100 years!

    Ho, ho, ho! Merry, merry!

  3. It's nice to finally find the gift that works, huh? I'm sure their loved ones will enjoy them.

  5. Heehee Lisa! My last name is Button and I love these! My own kiddos did snowflakes a few years ago with buttons and it's always fun to see new projects and ideas! Merry Christmas to you and hope you have a lovely break and find some time to relax!
