When I unveiled a set of four rolls of colored masking tape the other day, you couldn't have seen a happier kid. She loves tape! My thought process went something like this: "If I give Maia something really fun to work with, I'll be able to get some sewing done." I have to say it worked. She cut and taped happily for about an hour.
Maia chose poster board for her tape art from the selection I keep in the studio. This red one is a red/blue reversible poster board that we're enjoying these days when we want a change of pace from white.
The colored masking tape was very easy for Maia to unroll, cut, and use herself. I imagine that younger and older kids would probably have just as much fun with it. Heck, I'd probably have just as much fun! I'm wishing we had a tape dispenser like Kayte and Arwens, though. I may need to rig something up…
Here's one of Maia's finished pieces of tape art. It's hard to see, but that's a face floating above the pyramid of tape.
I hung it (taped it, actually) on the living room wall along with a couple of her other artworks.
Have you tried tape art?
