Button Practice Felt Flowers

Keeping little hands busy can often be a struggle. And while I usually don’t have a problem with a messy activity, sometimes you just want something simple to throw at them without the worry of cleanup coming later. You need to make yourself a couple of these button practice felt flowers! They are perfect for around the house, car rides, plane rides, waiting rooms, restaurants, you name it!Save a few jar lids to make these super cute button practice felt flowers! Fine Motor, Hand-eye coordination, and a good skill to master for any kid.

This fine motor activity is perfect for hand-eye coordination and let’s face it… teaching them to button and unbutton is pretty important too. We created no-sew button snakes a while back if your little one isn’t a flower lover. My daughter loves to create flower crafts, so I wanted this project to be something that she loved making and working with. She can sit and create flowers for long chunks of time so that’s a win in my book!

What you need for your Button Practice Felt Flowers:

  • A jar lid.
  • Pipe Cleaner.
  • A button. Size doesn’t matter too much. A larger button is easier for a younger child to manipulate.
  • Felt. Green and any color for flowers.
  • Scissors.
  • Hot glue and a hot glue gun.

Making your Button Practice Felt Flowers:

Start by taking your pipe cleaner and threading it through your button. Twist off to attach. Using hot glue attach the pipe cleaner under the rim of the jar lid. Then bend and glue so that the button comes away from the center of the jar lid.Save a few jar lids to make these super cute button practice felt flowers!
