Do you remember playing with large buttons from your mother’s button jar or box? I do. We played with them for hours and they whirled and buzzed while we pulled on the string. I made them for my grandsons. I thought I would share this memory with you.
A buzzer is often constructed by running string through two of the holes on a large button and is a easily made toy. American Indians used the buzzer as a toy and, also ceremonially, as to call up the wind. Early Indian buzzers were constructed of wood, bone, or stone, and date back to 500 B.C
Go find you button jar and make one.
