BUTTON FUN.

Source: Games for Everybody






An amusement for small children, is to gather together as many buttons
of all shapes and sizes, plain and fancy, as can be obtained.

The largest button is the father, the next size is the mother, several
children arranged according to size, and a tiny one for the baby.

Plain buttons are called servants, others animals and pets. The
children arrange their families in pasteboard boxes, using pasteboard
cards for chairs, carriages, etc. All children like to play "house,"
and a whole afternoon can be whiled away making stores out of cards,
to do shopping in, and boats for the button-children to play
in. "School" also can be played and the boys enjoy forming rows of
soldiers and parading up and down.
