Animal pin-back buttons can be a fun way to teach kids or people learning a new language the words for different animals.

If you have multiple photo buttons you can play a game of memory. Make sure you have two of each button, flip them pin side up and mix them up. Take turns flipping two buttons over to see if they match. If you are playing alone, time yourself to see how long it takes to correctly pick the pin-back buttons.

Can you think of other creative uses for buttons, other than wearing them?

Food buttons are easier to make than baking cookies, and you don’t need to worry about allergies.
