In need of a great looking name tag for the kids backpack? Create an easy to do tag out of duck tape this month. This tag even features a name card window and best of all it only takes 5 minutes to make.
Materials needed are a scrap of fabric, duck tape, acetate, a hole punch, and a key ring. Begin by cutting out a scrap of fabric the size of the name tag. Cover both sides with duck tape according to the template provided on Kids Activities Blog.
Cut out a rectangular piece of acetate the size of the window. Put tape around the edge of the acetate leaving the top edge open to slide in the tag. Punch a hole on the open end of the window.
Cut out a rectangular piece of card board and let the kids decorate this piece with their name. Then slide the cardboard inside the name tag, place the key ring inside the hole and ready is the cool looking handmade name tag.
