  • Add the Duck Tape around the edge. We used the 3/4 inch, but you can certainly use the full size Duck Tape and either tear it into strips or wrap it around the edge of the paper.

Now it’s time to create the different games. The options are endless. We came up with 4 different games to choose from.

Color Bingo
