My six year old Gabriel had fun with these Easter projects, although these definitely require adult supervision. So if you’re looking to get creative with duck tape, these projects are quite easy to make and are great ways to bond with your kids! 🙂
I will be featuring more Easter crafts this week, courtesy of A.C. Moore! So stay tuned in!
