    Slick and fun, this book does far more than demonstrating how to assemble "from backpacks to kayaks, writing desks to rocket launchers" out of duct tape, cardboard, and PVC pipes. For all ages, best of all, it also shows how to achieve the problem-solving mindset essential to both artists and engineers.

    Who knew you could build so many things using duct tape?? These are a lot more involved than a duct tape wallet and will certainly take a lot more time to complete. Sounds like the perfect book to give a tween/teen before summer vacation. Heck, they can spend the first half of summer creating the duct tape kayak, and the second half tooling around in it!! :) I'm so glad I won this book giveaway!

    going way beyond tape and wallet making - I thought I had seen a wide range of uses but this does get into bigger projects. It was kind of inspiring and although the projects are specifics the techniques could be modified and used for a lot of different projects. I can't let Silas see this book they are already so obsessed with duct tape! going way beyond tape and wallet making - I thought I had seen a wide range of uses but this does get into bigger projects.

    I haven't tried any of the projects in this book, but they look doable, and the instructions for them are straight forward. I am not super handy, but think that I could manage most, if not all, of these projects.

    Interesting How-To picture book explaining various projects involving the aforesaidmentioned duct tape. Not exactly what I was looking for but informative for those who are embarking on any projects he explained in detail.

    I hoped Ian would find some interesting projects, as he often works with tape, and thought there might be something he could make with dad. Not. The. Case.
