All Duct Out is a fun and unique craft activity that uses duct tape to make all sorts of items including purses, bows, bracelets, necklaces, shoe strings, and more. The craft comes with eight rolls of multi-colored duct tape, stencils, directions, and materials to make a purse earrings, key chains, and a brooch. While the directions are specific and detailed, we found it helpful to get online and watch the video instructions, too. The video instructions also provide additional ideas for other crafts you can make with the duct tape.

Our testers, who ranged from ages six to twelve, loved this craft. They had loads of fun making all sorts of items. Parents liked that multiple kids could work on the activity at the same time. One tester said that she had four girls working on different duct tape creations at once, and that each had plenty of materials to work with. While some needed a little assistance, they were able to work primarily on their own. Best of all, when the kit's materials do run out, it is very easy to find replacement duct tape.
