Sticky radiator tape spectacle

What you need

  • A radiator that has vertical grooves (ensure it is not hot at the time). Alternatively, you could apply your tape to a wooden/tiled floor surface or a window or glass door.
  • Sticky tape such as masking tape.


Another fun, easy experience using sticky tape, this is an opportunity for fine motor skill development, hand-eye coordination and will encourage reaching, stretching and standing/squatting.

The experience

Apply the tape to the radiator grooves or to a floor surface/window/door. Ensure you leave a piece at the end, folded over so it won’t stick as a tab for your child to pull from. See how quickly they can peel the pieces of tape off!
