Take the tape outside
3 April 12
Sticky-tape is such a great craft resource for children — more so if we let them take it outside to use on projects that incorporate natural materials. This idea wasn’t mine, it came from our daughters while they were playing in a garden.
Then Aisha thinks to ask if they can use their sticky-tape outside. Of course! What a great idea!
Aisha’s boat needs more construction oomph than sticky-tape, so the project is abandoned. Brioni, however, has her imagination ignited by the flowers and combines them with a soft toy.
Whenever I buy sticky-tape, I always buy great quantities so I don’t feel like I need to moderate the girls’ use of it. This was a lesson I learned last year with matches, and letting go of little things like monitoring how much sticky-tape is being used is incredibly freeing!
