Kids Activity: Duct Tape Bracelets

Collect, stick and create a beautiful accessory while exploring nature.

COVID-19 Update: All members and visitors need to make a reservation in advance of their visit to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Find updates and information here.

They say duct tape can fix anything that is broken. In this project, nothing is broken, but duct tape does make a nature walk more fun! It’s a hands-free nature collection option.  Little hands can stick, collect, and create a beautiful accessory as they explore.

Duct tape (or other tape)
Scissors (optional but helpful for taking the bracelet off)
Nature materials you collect

1. Tear off a piece of duct tape about twice as large as your wrist.
2. Stick the ends together around your wrist to make a bracelet with the sticky side out!
3. Head out on a walk and attach your finds to your bracelet.
