It must be a 5th grade thing. It certainly is a girl thing. For my girl and many of her friends making things out of duck tape is the new "in" thing. After a recent slumber party where they did fun and crafty things my 5th grader came home ready to duck tape any and everything. Thankfully there is YouTube. There are lots, I mean LOTS of YouTube videos for making things out of duck tape. Duck Tape in hand Emma set out to make a few things. First we have duck tape flowers.
You have probably seen at least one of these adorning a pen at your local Doctors office. I know I have. If you know us, rest assured you will have your own soon. I am talking to you Grandparents. Next, Emma decided to make a few hair bows for her younger cousins. Adorable. These she made up herself. I am sure there is a tutorial out there if you really, really want your own.
Lastly, she made this...
What is this you ask? Funny I asked the same thing. I said, "Hm. This is an interesting..a...Bookmark?" (notice the hesitancy) To which she replied, "Mom, It's not a bookmark. It's a churro." Well, duh. I knew that. A churro (the same cinnamon-y, sugar-y fried pastry popular in Mexico? One in the same.) No tutorial for this one folks. This one is all Emma.
