16 Summer Break Duct Tape Crafts for Kids

Have you heard yourself say this already? I’ll be honest and let you in on a little secret: I’m a newly single mom and I have been frantically planning my summer, trying to find ways to entertain my kids so that I don’t have to hear the ever present refrains of “Moooooommmy, I’m sooooooo bored!” every other hour.  When I was digging through my crafting supplies to find all the kid friendly craft projects I could find, I came across duct tape and had a great ah ha moment.  I pulled out all the duct tape I could find and my favorite non stick duct tape proof scissors and started my search for easy duct tape crafts for kids.ducttape
Duct tape comes in just about any color you can imagine, patterns, characters and even in flat sheets!  Oh, and don’t forget that there is even Scented Duck Tape!  After a quick run to the store for more colors and designs and a little bit of searching, I thought I’d share the results of my search with all my fellow moms, dads, teachers and summer care takers so that you can help the kids keep busy this summer.
