One thought on “A Button String from the Banks of Plum Creek

  1. Was this a large button with the thread going through the button and then back through another hole. Then the ends tied. Thread pulled loops on either side of the button so that they may be held one in each hand with the button between the hands?
    Then twirl the button round and round until it begins to pull the hands toward the button. Stretch the hands out – which makes the button whirl and buzz. It will also pull the hands back in towards the button. Repeat. Interesting toy. Be careful that no one gets hit by the whirling button. Since the girls are musical, experiment to see how the speed of the whirling button changes the tone produced. (another day’s science lesson! Gma.
