Buttons

Download Activity Guide

This idea is based on the book 'Silver Buttons' by Bob Graham shortlisted for Book Week 2014 Picture Book of the Year.

Inspired by the book ‘Silver Buttons’, create your own imaginative artwork using buttons and collage! 

  • Step 1Using craft paper, cut out some shapes to create a duck. Look to our design for inspiration or create your own cool shapes.
  • Step 2Arrange paper pieces and buttons onto your canvas until you are happy with the design and then glue them down.
  • Step 3Glue pieces of string from the button balloons to the ducks bill and then outline your duck with a black marker to make him really stand out.
  • You may like to tie the ends of the balloon strings together to look more like a bunch.
