Duct Tape Belts

We always like to incorporate a little bit of handmade with all of our gifts.  I think it's important for my kids to actually put a little bit of thought into a gift instead of just going to the store & pulling something off the shelf that they think someone might like.  Don't get me wrong, there's usually some store bought in there too, but there's a lot more pride in the gift when it includes a little handmade.

Last month Ethan had a birthday party for a friend at school and so we pulled out the duct tape & made a belt for his friend. {inspiration here}

 And then of course we made one for the gift-giver as well :)

These are fun, and so quick to make too!  And a recent trip to WalMart had a new print (mustache's!) landing in our cart, so now Jocelyn thinks she should have one too ;)

Happy Saturday!  I hope you're all managing to stay cool... we're just starting a forcasted week long heat wave, so I think we're going to head to the pool for the afternoon.  Cheers!

It's so cool the things that can be made with duct tape!
