I am attempting to make Mr 3 some Knitted Animals. Mr 3 was helping me choose the eyes for his animal from my button collection when both munchkins started bouncing around asking to play with the buttons instead. I tipped out the buttons and let them have some fun. It was wonderful the watching the little games they created for the next half an hour.
They sorted colours, picked their favourites, put them into piles. Mr 3 even made a fishing rod out of lego and wool and scooped up some 'button fish'.
