Wintery day activity: TP tube sculpting

Did you know Duct Tape now comes in all sorts of colors? How fun is that!? 

I originally bought this pink tape when we were moving with the intent of using it to tape up my daughter's boxes, but in the end she wanted stickers on her boxes like the rest of the house.

Then my husband acquired the blue Duct Tape as a Father's day gift from the ward (fun idea huh?).

What to do with such fun tape?

Make a work of art of course!

My mom had seen this fun art project, so she saved tons of tubes for my daughter. What fun we had! So much fun in fact that we did it for several days: take the sculpture apart and re-build.

Happy sculpting!
