HOW TO MAKE BUTTON SPINNER

SUPPLIES NEEDED
String
Large Button
Scissor

Cut a piece of string 36” long.

Thread the string through two of the button holes. If the button has four holes, place string though diagonal holes.

Tie the two loose ends of the string together with a knot.

Make finger loops at each end by tying another knot near the end of the string large enough for a finger.

Time to play!







HOW TO OPERATE AND MAKE IT BUZZ

Place the button in the middle of the string.

Place a finger from each hand into the finger loops.

Spin the button around in a circle to twist the string.

After twisted, pull the string apart for a second, then release the pressure. The string will twist back on itself. Pull the sting taut again to keep it spinning.

Continue this in and out motion.
