Masking Tape Peel

This activity has become another staple in our house. I now keep a roll of masking or painters tape on the bookshelf near the door. It is fast, no mess, and grabs their attention. 

I love how focused the boys get during this activity. You can really see them thinking, processing, and learning. 

Tips & Tricks:
  • Dog ear one corner for little fingers to peel easier. I started off with a big tab as their skill level has increased it has gotten smaller.
  • Adhere the tape going in various directions with the tab in different corners. This will encourage them to use their muscles in multiple ways.
  • Remove excess tape from window when your child is done playing. The tape can leave a sticky residue after a few days.
