Step One: Gather materials.
- Egg carton
- Pipe Cleaners
- Something to poke holes into the egg carton. The author used the sharp end of a corn holder.
- Tissue paper
Step Two: Start by poking the corn holder into the bottoms of the egg carton, making four holes for each button.
Step Three: Thread the pipe cleaner through one of the holes, and through the button and back down through the egg carton.
Step Three: Bend the pipe cleaner back up through the holes and back down to the inside of the egg carton.
Step Four: Twist the pipe cleaner ends together to secure the button, making sure the button to have some give. It should not be completely flat against the egg carton.
Step Five: Start practicing the buttons. Use a long ribbon with slits cut lengthwise. Practice with the egg carton on the child's lap or on the tabletop in front of them.
