At Care.com, there are 35 duct tape projects that are suitable for children. Some easy and fun crafts are superhero capes and cuffs. Materials for these projects include toilet paper rolls to make the cuffs; an old tablecloth and yarn for the cape; and scissors, duct tape and glitter glue to finish off the project. The website provides links for making these and all other craft ideas with easy to follow instructions.

The All Free Kids Crafts site has 41 different craft ideas, such as glitter jars, doll houses, crayon rolls, rockets and bath time boats. Although most of these projects are easy and suitable for young children, a few projects may be for older children. For example, the crayon rolls and bath time boats are simple projects that children from pre-school to elementary grades can make with the basic instructions provided.

However, the glitter jars are more labor intensive, and the instructions are more complicated. Similarly, along with safer materials like Duck glitter tape and wax paper, this project also requires materials that have the potential to injure younger children including mason jars, wire, wire cutters, craft knives and pliers. This may be a project for pre-teen youngsters with supervision.
