BUTTONS ARE MAGIC

A Creative Action Story by Jean Warren

Buttons are magic, or didnít you know.
Some make you smaller, some make you grow.

Anyway, thatís what I like to pretend.
When I go out playing with all of my friends.

A belt full of buttons, I button on me.
Theyíre really quite handy, as you will see.

If I want to talk, to the bugs on the ground,
I push a small button and shrink right on down.

It really is different , being so small.
The grass is a jungle, each blade super tall.

The creatures I meet, are happy to see
They have nothing to fear from wee little me.

And if quite by chance, I happen to meet
A bird whoís out looking for something to eat.

I press a big button and feel myself rise
Right back on up to my regular size.

Buttons all over, my belt is so fun.
It letís me help out, when thereís work to be done.

I press a big button and watch myself grow
Bigger all over, from my head to my toe.

The world is so different when I shoot up tall.
I can see over my house or sit on top of a wall.

And if there is a cat, stuck high in a tree,
I reach right on over and help set him free.

Being so tall is really quite grand.
When others work high, I can lend them a hand.

Now if thereís a plane flying low in the sky,
I zap right on down, if my headís up too high.

Buttons are magic or didnít you know.
Some make you smaller, some make you grow.

It really depends, what you want to be.
Anythingís possible, when you pretend like me.

BUTTON BELTS
Consider making button belts for your children.
Sew buttons of various sizes onto a 3Ē wide strip of sturdy material.
Measure your childís waist for the length of the belt, allow for button hole overlap.
Make a button hole on one end of the strip and be sure to sew a corresponding button on the opposite end.
Show you child how to button the belt around her waist.
