Xmas celebrations are in full swing in excess of right here.  The Xmas trees are up and decorated, the lights hung, and Santas’ and Snowmen are exhibited as considerably as the eye can see.  So it’s only fitting we break out the inexperienced painter’s tape.


As you may well know, we have a enjoy of painter’s tape in this home.  I have prepared about 7 methods to master numbers with painters tape, we have performed some mazes to find out letters, far too numerous art functions to list, and you have probably observed painters tape on our flooring in many posts that are not really about that painters tape.  Mainly because there is normally painters tape on our ground.  Simply because it is Incredible.

In fact, a friend of mine enjoys painter’s tape even more than I do.  I despatched her a photograph of this activity and told her it definitely ought to be heading on her site – Fingers on as we Expand – given that she is the accurate Painter’s Tape Queen.  She kindly replied there was no want, as she was organizing practically the actual very same exercise with her tiny kinds.  Oh fantastic minds .. terrific sticky minds …

This is a distinctive Christmas Version painters tape put up – prefect for introducing a small Xmas exciting to any day!

I started by immediately creating 2 Christmas tree designs out of painters tape on the flooring.

Two?  Certainly, the boys are in THAT stage.

Quickly?  The boys are also in that phase.

After the Christmas tree designs have been on the floor we manufactured some ornaments.  We slice some red and eco-friendly circles out of development paper so we could do some patterning on our tree.

Then I cut some popcorn-like styles (which Sammy assumed ended up teeth) out of white design paper.  I extra the figures 1-20 on them, so Sam could exercise buying his numbers while “stringing a popcorn garland”.

I put painters tape, sticky side up, across the Xmas tree – I required it to kind of glance like garland.  It worked very best to location only one piece of tape on at a time, if not ft and bodies would get caught on the other sticky pieces.


Sam commenced with his popcorn garland, and additional his numbered popcorn to his tree.  When he finished the to start with strand of tape, I would add one more underneath.


When he concluded his figures he did some patterning.  When he experienced utilized all his ornaments, he went to make more, and I would continue on to insert tape each time he questioned me to.  Boy did that tree get total!

Benjamin, at 2 yrs old, was not really into this exercise.  He stored getting caught in the tape.  I tried adding tape to his ornaments independently and permitting him stick them on his tree shape, but he was not definitely into it.

So I ended up making a street by means of his Christmas tree – and that was a huge hit.  Of study course it was — painters tape is Astounding.


Nearly as incredible as get in touch with paper … but that is for a different working day
