Duck Tape super hero mask {A-Z Play at Home}

Duck Tape super hero mask - the gingerbread house

Today we’re taking part in the A-Z Play at Home blog hop organised by Teach Me Mommy. This weeks letter is D! The idea of the series is to use everyday items for play or learning activities. We have a huge stash of Duck Tape or Duct Tape. It has so many use around the home but we really love to use ours for crafting!

My youngest has been learning all about super heroes at school so I thought it would be fun to make some Duck Tape super hero masks for play.

Easy Duck Tape super hero mask

We used rolls of Duck Tape, scissors, paper and velcro dots.

The first step was for the children to pick their favourite Duck Tape. This took a while as we’ve got quite a collection 🙂 Whilst they were doing this I roughly made a paper template.

Then we made a Duck Tape sheet by covering a sheet of paper, about 55cm long with strips of Duck Tape. We love using Duck Tape and it’s easier to work with and less sticky if you create a sheet like this. I used a contrasting print on the other side of the paper for the inside of the mask. And as I was bring very frugal I squeezed two masks onto my sheet.

You can see that the mask template is the same height as two strips of Duck Tape.

I cut my paper into two then placed my paper template in the centre of the strips of Duck Tape. I carefully cut around the eye mask leaving long thin strips either side of the mask – these were to attach around the back of the head.

I placed velcro dots at the ends of the thin strips to keep the mask in place, I wanted to make it super simple for the children to put on and off. You could make these from any colour of Duck Tape you have. My kids made up their own super heroes but I love that a simple mask transformed their play time in the sun!

    I couldn’t help but smile. When my son was little, he was forever making things out of duck tape. I swear, every time we went to the hardware store, we came home with at least 10 rolls. Swords and shields were some of his favorites!
