Montessori Activity: Buttoning & Unbuttoning

A cardigan with big buttons serves this function very well...

...than buying this expensive Montessori Dressing Frame - Buttoning:

1. To train the child’s hand-eye coordination skill.
2. To train fine motor skills.
3. To teach practical life skills.


1. 1 cardigan with big buttons
2. I tray or basket


1. Show your child how to insert the eyelet of the felt cloth through the button.

2. Encourage your child try it.

Additional Information:

J (3Y3M21D) tried this today 24 June 2012. He could button very well now compared to when he tried buttoning activity last yer around this time. He did 3 rounds of buttoning and it was completed very fast. However, it was more challenging for him to unbutton. It took him a longer time to do it, but he succeeded.
