what you need......Chenille stems / Buttons / Mini googly / eyes Glue
Bend the end of a chenille stem so the buttons don't fall off. Hand the stem and a pile of buttons to your child. He/she will know what to do! I was surprised myself! After the "body" is done, bend the rest of the chenille stem to make the head. Make a loop around the bottom to form a mouth. Glue

Put clear nail polish on the inside of a new clothing item's buttons threads and never lose a button again.
Most buttons are done in a factory by machine and they aren't backstitched to prevent the button from coming lose. A few dabs of clear nail polish on the threads that are holding the button on, will stop your buttons from falling off. I have yet to lose a button!
I've started using the "Nutrition Notes" toward the bottom of the "My Nutrition" page to (a) track what times I eat my 5-6 meals a day, and (b) track what new foods (or in my case, protein bars) I've tried and whether I liked them or not. This makes it easier when trying to remember whether I liked a particular flavor, and whether I should buy it again or not. WAY easier than scrolling through each day because you can print a "Nutrition Notes Report". SO HANDY!!!
Simply click the "See Notes Report" button and select the dates you wish to view.
If you loose a button and need to sew it on or if you need to move a button over keep in mind as long as u have a needle you could use dental floss if you don't have any thread it works well and does the job :) 41
