DIY Duct Tape River Raft

Handmade Charlotte

Water play is a key part of summer fun, and water toys can only add to the excitement. You can buy some plastic stuff at Target, or you could make your own toys, like this clever duct tape raft. Is there anything you can't do with duct tape?

Mer­rilee Lid­di­ard of MerMag put together this cute tutorial for Handmade Charlotte. While you build the raft itself, Merrilee recommends decorating it with your kids using all the wild duct tape versions out there. Build a few, and you can even race them.
