Time for preparation: none

Game description

This game is more suitable for older kids because the children have to be versatile with needle and thread. Everybody receives a piece of cloth, a few buttons, a needle and thread. Then the timer starts. The winner is the one who has sewn most of the buttons on his piece of fabric within 60 seconds. This game becomes more difficult if you use needles with really small holes. In the heat of the battle, already the threading of the needle becomes a challenge. It goes without saying, that every child is allowed to take his artwork home as a momentum.


The winner is the designated Button King. The game can be played in two teams. The team which works together the best and sews on the most buttons wins.
