Activity Idea Place: Buttons
Games Kids Play - Hide the Button I use to play this with whatever object in the room; great for recalling what is in the room.
Button Button, Who Has The Button? This is played with more than three people. Sit in a circle on the floor. Pass the button (make sure you don’t let anyone see you have it) to another person’s cup shaped hands. The person drops it in someone's hands. At the end say, "Button button, who has the button?". Each person needs to tell you if they have the button when they are asked the question.
This is a great lesson on honesty.SCIENCE

"B" Concentration Game
Use the pictures located here and bears (under "Bear Game") to view links of the objects. You can use the pictures located at Homepreschool.com: Beginning Sound Pictures (Object Page) A book, ball, bird, banana, bell, bear, balloon, boy, and bat for this game. Make 2 copies of each. Color (or you don't have to) the pictures and cut them out. Cut the amount you need of construction paper (blue, brown, or black) to be 1 1/2 x 2 1/2". Glue the picture on one side of the paper. Write the word near the picture. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper.
How to play: Have the child turn two cards over and match the same picture. Say the name of the object. If the child does not get a match, turn the cards back over. Repeat the process until all of the cards have matching pairs.
Option #2: Have the child close his/her eyes and spell the word (if the child reads).
Option #3: Do the above options but write the word in a foreign language (near the picture) or you can write two languages (native on the top and foreign on the bottom) of the picture.
Here are the words in Spanish for the "Beginning Sound Pictures":
book - libro, ball - pelota, bird - pájaro, banana - plátano, bell - campana, bear - oso, balloon - globo, boy - niño, and bat - bate
Play with: body, birds, butterflies, or other "B" puzzles
