Comic Book Button Story March 18 2013

Do you have any old comic books or magazines you don’t know what to do with? Make some pin-back buttons!

goth pins, comic book pins

Pin-back buttons on an old piece of shirt material. Pinback buttons are so durable, they can stick on material even after it’s too old to wear.

Comic book buttons can be a creative way to re-create a story, by placing them in different spots. You can re-pin them to make different storylines. It’s a good way to get kids and older students to think about story arcs and other parts of writing. It can also be a way to reconstruct a story which you feel is sexist or racist or problematic in other ways.

Have you ever re-written a story? Why not try it with buttons?!
