Can a day of the year be cute? Of course it can! November 16th is as cute as a button, because it’s National Button Day!
Why are buttons so fun? Is it because they are a useful clothing fastener? Is it because they come in all kinds of colors? Maybe, it’s because they’re awesome for arts and crafts. One thing’s for sure— these colorful, collectable little objects aren’t just for clothes!
Buttons can be used for all sorts of purposes. They make good board game pieces, beads, and fridge magnets. They make for an elegant centerpiece in a vase or a jar. Whether they’re wooden, plastic, brass, shiny, sparkly, or heart-shaped, These humble little doodads are versatile and fun!
To celebrate National Button Day, here’s an idea. Glue some buttons to a homemade card. You can make button balloons, a yellow button sun, or use them to represent a human head. Send the card to someone you love or enjoy seeing their reaction when you hand it to them in person!
