button jar!

button jar!, originally uploaded by hobbitsmama.

Does anyone else have a button jar? I love these buttons. Some are mine, some belonged to my mother, some to my grandmother and even a few (I believe) belonged to my great-grandmother. The kids love to sort through them (I admit, so do I.) and they come in handy for counting, adding, subtracting, etc .. and some of them just feel so nice trickling through your hands. I pull this jar out sometimes when it is rainy and the kids are complaining they have nothing to do. I love that something so simple brings out their creativity. Last time they even played storekeeper with the buttons. :)
