About a year ago at a friend’s birthday dinner, I saw a really neat seek and find tube. It was a long plastic tube filled with rice and small, mostly plastic, objects….a dinosaur, a button, a fish… etc.
After seeing Lil Fish Studio’s post today, (Not) Button Monday, it reminded me that I wanted to make one of these. Little bit was too young for such a thing at the time that I saw it, but I think it would be fun for him now.
I spent a little bit of time collecting little objects from around the house, some ordinary like a quarter, others were a little more unique.
In a Jar of buttons I found several colored beads, an old sewing machine knob, and of course buttons.
Among other things I included a couple of old rabies vaccination tags, bits of colored ribbon, a cuff link, a hair clip, some foreign coins, some clothing tags, and 2 bells.
I used an empty clean peanut jar and filled it almost full with rice and layered in the items.
My husband rolled it around on the deck for a while to give it a good mix.
