If you make a button book, and your child is like M, I would suggest matching button colors to shape colors.
We got a play hat at the Dollar Tree.
We matched some paper number eggs.
M helped to make a little chick. (Two fuzzy balls, felt or paper beak, and googley eyes.)
And we made a button egg.
This year we will update the button egg to the three year old version by adding ribbon stripes.
Sadly, I noticed that not one of those things is about Jesus' death and resurrection. I guess I should be honest and tell you that we didn't emphasize the reason for Easter last year (nor did we focus on the Easter bunny).
This year is very different now that M is nearly 3 1/2. We are reading the Easter story in a couple different Bibles. M loves the resurrection eggs I made. I need to post about it soon.
