Masking Tape Art for Kids

This post contains affiliate links.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 masking 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 masking tape art with your kids?
