Ways to Play with Washi Tape


Ok so you’ve bought a multi pack of brightly coloured washi tape mainly because I’ve told you that you NEED it in your play cupboard...but now what?! 

I get asked what to do with Washi Tape at least once a day, so thought it was time to write a list of simple ideas.

To be honest I had all intentions of making this a fancy download sheet however as I’m in lockdown just like you, I’m sure you can sympathise that I am struggling to find a child free hour in the day at the moment, when I do a moment, I have a list as long as my arm to get done!!
