Rainbow Button Letters and the Friday Kid's Co-op Link up!

We have been having fun with the letter M this week at our house. Originally I thought it would be fun to create playdoh monsters (you know, since monster starts with the letter M), but my son had a different idea and so I turned the activity over to him.

His idea was to use the buttons (which I had called Monster eyes) to help him create rainbow alphabet letters- specifically lower and uppercase letter m.

I didn't get any pictures of the process because I was trying to keep the 17 month old from eating the buttons and get her to play with the playdoh instead of eating it (can't wait till she is over that!).

My son was occupied with his rainbow button letters for quite some time though. Once I got my daughter exploring the materials (instead of eating them), I created some letters with him too and then we swapped materials and created again.

We had such a great time on our kitchen floor (having a playdoh picnic) talking about the colors of the rainbow and the characteristics of different alphabet letters.

Do you love creating rainbows or projects that are rainbow themed? Head on over to The Outlaw Mom's blog for an awesome rainbow blog hop. There are almost 100 ideas linked up! We will be linking up our simple rainbow post too.

If you have any other fabulous posts from this past week, come join us and link up to the Friday Kid's Co-op Linky! Each week I am blown away by all of the amazing things people create. Come share what you've been up to! We love to feature the posts we discover on our blog and Facebook page, so link up so that we can feature you! Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. What a colorful activity! My son has played with marbles and playdough, but we haven't tried buttons yet. Putting that on our to-do list! Thanks for sharing your idea on the Co-op! :)
