My family has always made things. I’ve seen my dad do some amazing things with duct tape. We actually called it gray tape, but – same thing.
Only now there is a huge variety of different types and styles of duct tape. Believe me it has gone way beyond its original use.
Wait until you see these cool duct tape projects. Working with the tape is pretty easy, figuring out which one to make when there are so many cool ones? That may take a few minutes. Just ask your boy which one he wants to start with.
Duct Tape Crafts
Check out these duct tape craft for boys. Why for boys? Well, they were picked out by a boy mom and by boys and are crafts that especially appeal to them.
Yes, of course, anyone can do them but if you want to get boys making things and crafting you have to provide something they will actually like.
Duct Tape River Raft
This is neat! Build a raft out of tape. Your boy's small toys can float on it. You could build the one shown here or give them supplies and have them engineer their own raft as a STEM project.
Knight Sword and Shield
Calling all knights! This is a great way to make a silver knight sword and shield. Tin foil tends to rip, and paint doesn't hold up well, so grey tape is perfect for this project.
Duck Tape Rockets
Up, up and away! These rockets are pretty spiffy looking, aren't they? This is a fun crafty project. While they don't shoot up into the sky, kids can throw them around, and they make a pretty cool decoration as well.
Football and Baseball Clipboards
Here is a sports craft project to try. Make a football and baseball clipboard. You could also do a soccer one through there are no specific instructions for that. These would make a neat gift for a coach or would be nice for a kid to bring to the field to keep track of the score.
How to Make a Duct Tape Watch Band
Well, since we do so much LEGO around here, you know I had to include this one. They took a LEGO Ninjago watch with a broken band and made a graffiti tape watch band to fix it.
Picture Frame Craft Idea
This is a super easy duct tape craft to make. With so many cool patterns out today, you can personalize this with something they like. These make great gift ideas as well.
Zippered Pouch for LEGO
You can store anything in this nifty zippered pouch crafted out of adhesive tape, but why would you when you can store LEGO in it! Seriously though, it also make a cool pencil case.
DIY Duct Tape Boat
Remember way back when kids made paper boats to float along the river? Well, this is a modern version of that idea. The nice thing is that because the tape is plastic-based it is much more durable than paper and lasts a long time.
Superhero Duct Tape Bookmarks
Another simple duct tape project is a bookmark. These come together in no time. I love the superhero design she chose.
How to Make a Duct Tape Battle Axe
Whether you need a battle axe for a costume or just for playtime, you can't pass this one up. It is a great looking axe! The step-by-step tutorial instructions are excellent so you and your boys should have not problems making it.
How to Make a Duct Tape Wallet
This takes a bit of work but if your boy needs a wallet, he may enjoy this project. Using a neat patterned tape will make it look mighty cool.
LEGO Batmobile Craft
If he liked the LEGO Batman Movie, he will likely enjoy making this Batmobile that really rolls!
There is a huge variety of cool duct tapes to choose from. Check them out here to see which ones you and your boys would like to get.
This craft book, Tape It & Make It, looks pretty great. It has very good reviews.
I hope you found a fun duct tape project your boys will enjoy doing. I think we are going for the battle axe first.
