Tape Art

I think all kids love tape; I know I did when I was a child. A is no exception. She has a special art drawer with supplies she can use herself anytime, her favorite item being several rolls of colored electrical tape. The other day during nap time / quiet time while daddy dozed and G slept A make the tape art picture above on some scrap cardboard. I love that she came up with this project completely independently. She used her wavy scissors to cut the tape giving the edges a neat texture and tried to combine layers of tape to create green grass.

When I got home from work and saw her latest creation I did a little searching on the Internet and found some other fun tape art.

How do your kids like to create with tape?


  1. Neat idea! Does she cut the tape herself or do you do it?

    1. A cuts the tape herself - she is pretty good with a pair of scissors. She used her crinkle edge scissors when she made the picture above.

  2. VERY clever idea! I shared it with my Facebook readers here: Thanks for linking up to TGIF! Have a GREAT weekend,
    Beth =-)
