Duct tape is truly magical. It can be used for nearly everything, including creating an awesome little duckie which can then be attached to a tub stopper to make taking a bath super fun!

Before we can get to the folding process to create a duck, we'll need to make some duct tape sheets.
  1. Cut a piece of duct tape approximately 9" long and place it sticky side up on your work surface
  2. Cut a two more pieces the same length and place them over the first so that they meet at it's center
  3. Flip the whole thing over and apply pieces to cover the outside edges
  4. Repeat until you have roughly a square of duct tape sheet
  5. Trim the sheet down to form a 8.5" x 8.5" square

Soooo, I wasn't able to get a big enough duct tape sheet, and, my folding is off... but tada! Duct Tape Duck Shape. I had a hard time following the folding instructions and the video. I would suggest with the pictures, put the instruction in the lil notes section. I had to keep scrolling down, and losing my place.
