We Built This City!

Tape is a very practical item. Moms and Dads use it for all sorts of important tasks, and so do kids. I’m always looking for my tape, and guess who usually has it? Yup, the munchkin squad! They are constantly stealing my tape, and when they use it they use a lot of it. Kids love tape almost as much as they love popsicles and puppies! Even the boring clear tape gets a workout in our house. Why? Because it’s sticky, you can make cool stuff with it, and, well… it’s sticky!

The problem that my family encountered with masking tape was that the color options were limited, and any color besides beige was rather expensive. Now, what kid is happy living a “beige” life? We needed some color, so our family did some research and testing and developed Bam! Tape colorful masking tape.

Colorful Bam! Tape makes a kid’s taping dreams come true! It comes in 10 beautiful, bold and brilliant colors that make any application come alive. The rolls are huge, so there are no worries about running out of a color before a project is complete. This masking tape comes off the roll easily, so my kids don’t spend a bunch of time trying to peel it off without leaving half of the strip behind.

Use colorful masking tape to make roads and cities on your floors and walls. How fun is that? This is a great activity for busy little people. If you have several children, you can have each child create their own street or neighborhood. Also, you can have each child be responsible for certain aspects of the city. Think builder, road engineer, landscaper, etc. Once the city is built, then get out the cars and people and make it come alive. This is a great activity to encourage creativity, organization and cooperative play. It is also a great way to  work those fine motor skills. If you have a rainy day to fill, this activity is sure to please.

Enough about rainy weather, let’s talk parties! I have triplets, so I’m always looking for great party activities that are budget friendly and that can entertain a large group, including parents. Colorful masking tape can be used for creative and novel activities that will work with any children’s birthday party theme. For example, have your party guests build a jungle, a rail road, an airport or a beautiful fairy garden. So much fun! Create your own, theme specific version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Use masking tape to decorate instead of streamers. We use it write a welcome message on our driveway so that guests see it as they arrive. It’s also great for marking areas for games such as hopscotch or races. How ever you use it, colorful masking tape will surely make your birthday parties more festive!

I hope that these ideas are giving you some tape inspiration. Please remember that children under 6 years old should always be closely supervised when using tape. Tape is pretty, but it isn’t food and could cause an airway obstruction if children put it in their mouths. Always check to be sure that a surface is safe for tape application before you start your project. Test in an inconspicuous area first. To avoid damage do not leave tape on a surface for an extended period of time.
