Astronaut pin-back button

You can make astronaut pin-back buttons out of print materials from the school or science centre. Space buttons can make a good addition to a science fair if you put them out in a bowl on the table next to your bristol board and other presentation material. “Teacher; this is totally not a bribe!”

This spaceman – or woman or person – bears the number 23 on their spacesuit. Why not wear a 23 button on your earth suit?

Why not make an astronaut button of your favorite space person likeĀ Chris Hadfield, or you can cut out pictures from old science fiction comic books, or photos from the night sky at camp, or… The possibilities are pretty much like space – endless!

What would happen if you were wearing a space pin-back button in space and something got poked?


Chris Hadfield button

Chris Hadfield was born in Ontario, and is both the first Canadian to walk in space as well as the first Commander of the International Space Station.

This custom button is perfect for a one of a kind Canadian hero!

If you want to make your own pin-back buttons to celebrate a hero in your life, buy local and both save money as well as support the local economy – Canadian Button Makers.

Lego buttons

Lego was originally from Denmark, but it has been in Canada for decades and recently a Lego Discovery Centre opened in Ontario.

To commemorate the first Canadian Lego centre, as well as the first Canadian to be the Commander of the International Space Station (Chris Hadfield), here are a couple buttons:

Did you know that Lego has been in outer space? The parts that were in space returned last week.
