Duct Tape Picture Frame

What You Need:

  • Thick cardboard
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Recent photo of your child (4" x 6")
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Markers
  • Wrapping paper (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Help your child measure out and draw a rectangle slightly smaller than 4" x 6" on the cardboard. Around this rectangle, draw a 2-3" in border.
  2. Have her cut out the larger rectangle. This is your frame. Create a window for the photo by cutting out the smaller rectangle from within the larger rectangle. Be sure to keep the frame intact.
  3. Help her cover the frame using long strips of duct tape, letting the edges overlap so no cardboard shows through. Trim any excess tape.
  4. Place the photo of your child in the frame.
  5. Keep the photo in place by taping a 1" x 6" strip of cardboard along the back of the frame. This strip can also be used to hang the frame.
  6. Encourage your child to embellish the frame by cutting out duct tape letters or use the markers to write Dad's name or a short message on the front and decorate the rest of the frame.

Wrap up your present and give it to Dad on Father's Day!
