We love crafting with duck tape, it’s so simple but can give great results. My boys all enjoy cutting and sticking with tape, especially T (5) who is always really fascinated with this, so it’s fun for them to try using tape to make different pictures and designs.

Since Duck tape is waterproof, you can use these eggs outdoors in Easter egg hunts – maybe by writing clues on the back and then sealing that side with contact paper (Sticky back plastic). We also used them to practice ordering by size.

To make these duck tape Easter eggs you will need:

  • Paper or card
  • Duck tape in different colours and patterns
  • Scissors
  • A pencil or pen

We were sent a selection of fun Spring time Duck tape designs and we used these to make the eggs.

How to make the Duck tape Easter eggs

This is a really easy activity that will work well for even toddlers, with a little help.

First, draw your egg shapes onto the paper. It doesn’t matter if they are a little rough. They can be all different sizes.

It doesn’t matter at all if the tape goes over the lines, because you will be cutting out the eggs anyway and whether the lines are stuck neatly, or stuck on in all different directions by your toddler – either way will still give you good results.
