Masking Tape: Bringing Brothers Together

I remember seeing this idea a few years (!) ago on someone’s blog (so sorry I forget whose!) and finally tried it out for a little indoor fun.

I covered the opening to our teeny tiny hallway with a crisscross of masking tape. I originally thought the boys would enjoy breaking through it, but they surprised me by exploring ways to get through it without pulling the tape off the wall.

The most rewarding part of this activity was that the boys stopped bickering with each other for more than 5 minutes. Amazing.

Masking tape. Who knew?
