A friend's daughter over at Schooling in the Sun has been really into making duct tape projects. One day we were at a local activity together and her daughter, Turtle, brought some of her creations. She had made some adorable duct tape bags for all the children there.
Of course, the minute my daughter saw these, she was hooked. Within the week we were at the store buying duct tape. I didn't realize all the colors and patterns they come in. Here's what we picked out.
So we searched YouTube and found a series of videos from Duck brand duct tape on how to make duct tape wallets, purses, flowers, flip flops, belts, ties, and more. You can click on any of those links to see the videos or you can visit the Duck brand website where you can learn more.
Here are some of my daughter's creations
I think these are some great and easy projects to work on. My daughter is 8 and I did have to help. It will be hard for younger children to rip the tape off the roll, unless you use scissors, and if you do, don't use a good pair because they will get all sticky. Also, remember that once you stick two sticky sides of tape together, you are not going to get them apart...so take your time. :)
If you end up making some projects, please come back and let me know. We would love to see them!
