Lately we've spotted a lot of outdoor activities on the common Ottawa event listings and hopefully the weather will be nice enough this winter holiday that we get to go skating, skiing and hiking.
But for those freezing days that we all know are coming, it's better to stay indoors and get into some classic holiday button making.
It's Exactly Like Magic, Well Almost
Seeing someone make a button for the first time is always very heartwarming. Kids and adults alike tend to marvel over how incredibly easy and fun it is to make your own badges, usually exclaiming "IT'S LIKE MAGIC!".
This is not just a great family activity - really EVERYBODY likes buttons!
