Duct Tape Go Fish

Designer: Amanda Kingloff

Angling for a good idea? Add a school of colorful duct-tape fish to your kids’ activities.


  • Duct tape: assorted colors
  • Metal washers
  • Cardstock
  • 12“-diameter dowel: 18” long
  • 1 yard of string
  • Small magnet
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • Poster board: light blue
  • Fish pattern (download it here)

Assemble the Fish:
1. Cut four 4″ strips from duct tape. Slightly overlap two strips at long edges with adhesive side up. Place  washer near center of strips; cover with remaining strips, sticky side down.
2. Trace the fish pattern onto cardstock; cut out. Trace fish onto prepared tape from Step 1; cut out.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to create more fish.

4. Tie one end of string to dowel end. Hot-glue opposite string end to a magnet.

5. Cut shape for pond from light blue poster board.
