He started out by making pipe cleaner and button cars
|Stringing on the wheels...|
|A proud boy with his finished car!|
|Another one of his cars|
After he was done making a large collection of cars he moved on to making pictures with the buttons. First he made Corduroy from the book by Don Freeman. The large white button with 2 holes is the one that Corduroy is looking to match on his adventure through the department store.
Then it was time to build a Christmas tree
|The tree in progress.|
And to close out his fun with buttons he decided to make pipe cleaner and button pocket watches for Lily, Ish, and himself.
|Reading the time on his pocket watch|
Perhaps one of these days we will make those caterpillars, but I think he had a much better time creating on his own terms.
