We love tape! It’s affordable, it’s low-mess, and it’s totally open-ended. Give a kid a few rolls of tape and you never know what they’ll come up with!

You can use masking tape (you can buy this by the roll or in larger packs), or washi tape, or even painter’s tape! They all work and are guaranteed to become a new favorite art supply.

2. Tape Resist Painting

Use tape to make a design on paper or canvas and paint over the tape. Then peel off the tape to reveal your tape-resist artwork!

4. Cards Made with Tape

Use washi tape to decorate cards instead of drawing materials. The results are totally unique and lovely! You can make holiday cards, thank you or birthday cards this way.
