This weekend we started crafting for Easter. I know it’s a few weeks away but we spotted some Duck Tape in our local craft shop which inspired our Easter squishies craft. Easter means different things to different people. My children are looking forward to a visit from the Easter bunny, but for me it’s a time of Spring and Spring cleaning. But before I share our latest tutorial on how to make a Duck Tape Easter Squishy, I wanted to tell you about a great competition from Duck Tape where you could be the Easter star of your class!
Share your Easter craft to win
We have so much fun crafting at Easter time. Do you remember the Duck Tape Easter Eggs we made a few years ago? There are so many things you can craft from an Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Bonnet Parade to Easter cards. Well, Duck Tape love that people craft at this time of year. To celebrate, they want you to share your Easter craft for the chance to win prizes!
Would you like to win 35 full size chocolate Easter Eggs? Yes, that’s enough for a whole class! To enter all you need to do is upload a picture of your Easter craft onto Twitter, with the words “I want to win the @ukduckman Easter Craft Eggstravaganza!”
If you’re under 16, you may need your mum, dad, teacher or main carer to do this for you. Five winners will be chosen by a panel of judges on the 20th March, each of whom will win 35 Easter Eggs and a fantastic supply of Duck Tape for them and their class mates. You can find the full T&Cs over on the Duck Tape website, alongside ideas and inspiration.
How to make a Duck Tape Easter squishy
My 7 year old loves making squishies and wanted to make some using Duck Tape. They are simple to make only requiring cello bags, toy stuffing, White Duck Tape, a permanent black marker and scissors.
Fill a cello bag with stuffing and seal shut. Cover with strips of white Duck Tape until the whole thing is sealed.
Add a face and ears with the permanent pen. You can pierce through the Duck Tape with a sharp needle to make sure it will fill with air once squished. We made a carrot too using orange coloured Duck Tape! What would you make?
