Duct Tape Mania

Reviewed by:

“If you’ve never played around with duct tape before…it can be habit forming!”
Used by handymen for decades, the famous grey duct tape has developed into a colourful, crafty tool which can be used for almost anything.  Fans of the former television show, Red Green, will especially enjoy the creative ways in which duct tape can be fashioned and fashionable. The uses for duct tape are endless, and this book will open your finest ‘craftsmen’ to create or design their own tools from this versatile material.
Basic instructions on tips and how to handle the material, at the beginning of the book, should not be missed, as they set crafters up for success.  This book is divided into sections on stuff to wear, carry, for your room, for school, for fun and extras that don’t seem to fit into any category.  Colourful, large photos on bright backgrounds and written instructions of each step-by-step to provided for making each craft or device.  As a result, this book is both visually appealing and easy to use for upper elementary to young adults.
This is a unique book among the craft books as the material itself is so unique. This book would be useful for individual interest by crafters and art classes. It connects strongly to the grade one and three science curriculums.  Students might use this building material in designing, constructing and testing its usefulness.
