Fun with Tape

Simple as it may seem, a small piece of tape can provide young children with a lot of enjoyment. Collect a few different kinds of colorful plastic tape, masking tape, double-sided tape, and so on. Your toddler will sometimes enjoy using tape in place of glue when making a collage.

  • Pieces of tape


  1. Give your young child one or two pieces of tape to play with.
  2. She may try sticking them together, to herself, to you, or to other objects around the house.
  3. Be sure to watch her if you're worried about the tape sticking to precious books or papers that may be in her path.
