Free Parent Involvement Activity – "Disappearing Buttons" – Age 1

Observation & Discovery, Large Motor Skills
Fill a clear plastic, wide-mouthed container halfway with white sugar (an empty tennis ball container works well). Add two or three large, colorful buttons to the sugar, then use a glue gun to attach the lid to the container. Slowly roll the container in front of your child and draw her attention to the buttons as they appear and disappear in the sugar. She will take it from there!
CAUTION!: Monitor your child closely during this activity. Always use non-toxic materials.
