button heart

As you know, Monday is not always the most favourite day of the week. We have decided to help to make them more fun for you and yours. Every Monday you can enjoy a fun creative activity brought to you by the award-winning Creation Station.

If you want to show the love this Valentine's Day, check out this fun and quick activity. You and your child can create this lovely button heart,  that could be a bracelet or an ornament for your loved ones this Valentine's day. 

For one heart you will need:

  • 2 Pipe cleaners
  • Buttons

Step 1: Choose your buttons and thread them through the pipe cleaners, one at a time. If you want to make a bracelet, measure the length of the pipe cleaner you will need and shorten by cutting the end of the pipe cleaners before threading the buttons.

Step 2: When both pipe cleaners are filled with buttons, twist the ends together to form a circle. 

Step 3: Shape your circle into a heart by bending the pipe cleaners in the direction you want.

Step 4: Gift it to the one you love or a friend or a family member and watch them smile :)
