With the Alex All Duct Out kit, kids ages seven and older can create a variety of duct-tape creations. Kids will learn how to make creative objects using duct tape, including a belt, jewelry, and a pair of duct tape-wrapped glassless glasses. With the included fabric and plastic chain, kids can make a one-of-a-kind duct tape purse. The kit features eight rolls of tape in different colors and patterns, plus all the hardware and shape templates needed to create all eight projects described in the instructions.
The Alex All Duct Out kit includes eight rolls of duct tape in six colors and two animal-print patterns. With five wide rolls and three narrow ones, kids can play with patterns and color pairings as they create unique duct-tape creations.
Our testers found that the tape in this kit is thinner and less gummy than the traditional silver duct tape, making it easier to tear and manipulate into the shapes needed for the different projects. Some projects require scissors, which can get sticky after cutting the tape. The instructions recommend using vinegar--and an adult's help--to remove glue from the scissors.
Using the included illustrated instructions as well as online tutorials provided by Alex, kids can learn to make the projects described and learn how to work with duct tape for future projects. By showing how young crafters can use the included supplies such as non-stick sticker paper, shape templates, and hole punch, they'll develop skills that they can bring to future duct tape projects.
In addition to the many colors of duct tape, the All Duct Out kit includes the pieces you need to complete every project described in the instructions. With four earring hooks and four jump rings, you can make two pairs of earrings. The precut fabric and lengths of pink plastic chain combine with tape to create a small purse with a strap. You can also make a belt, duct-tape stickers, a brooch, and two headbands.
Our testers found the instructions clear and inspiring. The kit includes enough supplies to make every project, with no need to choose between options. The included templates and colors of tape offer several options for each project, so that no two need to be alike. The results are colorful and unique, sure to inspire the imagination of any young crafter.
