Most children have a creative flair and love for arts and crafts as they are naturally creative and curious. This can be even more enjoyable for them when it means one on one quality time with a parent or loved one. Unfortunately we are starting to see iPad screens and games consoles taking over the number 1 spot on children’s wish lists leaving less time and thought for creative activities. Let’s start to turn this around!
Arts and crafts can help improve fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while enhancing decision making skills and self-expression. What’s more some activities can require nothing more than some scissors and a roll of Duck Tape!
Duck Tape Colours, a patterned duct tape retailer have pulled together a list of 3 child friendly activities that you can do with Duck Tape!
This is a firm favourite with younger children, not only can you create a backpack that fits all the school essentials in it is also fun to wear. All the children at school will want their own!
Most of us will remember these games in the school playground or at the park! Help your children to create their own version while reminiscing, all you need is Duck Tape Sheets, scissors and a pen!
This is a fun craft for a rainy day or for a playdate and the best part of it is that you don’t need any special equipment for it. Useful for their studies and school work this activity is an all-round winner!
Keeping your children entertained and interested can sometimes feel like an impossible task so we are always welcoming new ideas! There are a wide range of Duck Tape projects for a wide range of skill levels including travel related crafts and seasonal ideas. Some are perfect for school and others are purely for fun, take a look at their Ductivity section to spark some inspiration for this weekend! Have you tried any of them?
