Masking tape pattern


This artistic make will help to develop your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they carefully position and stick down the masking tape and paint over it to create some patterned paper. Your child can really let their imagination run wild as they experiment with different colours and patterns to create their own unique picture.

How to extend the magic

Why not create a masking tape pattern together. You could sponge the paint on or blow it across the paper with a straw to create a more unusual design. Have fun experimenting with your child!
