In case you missed it, tape got a makeover. The kind that would make Cinderella jealous. Give these creative and colorful masking, painter’s and of course washi tapes a chance to shine with your crew during summer play time. From an easily changed-up dance game to simple masking tape balance beams, we’ve rolled out the best games to play using tape. Bonus: All these ideas work for inside play when it’s just too hot to hang outdoors!

Elevate Your Game
In the spirit of navigating your way over and under super sensitive lasers to steal the world’s most precious diamond, challenge your little jewel thief to make her way through a taped-out version instead. Simply string tape across the hallway and then have your Bond wannabe crawl, climb and gingerly step from one end to the other without tripping the alarm. Mission totally possible!
