Looking For Some Low Cost Fun?

Make a quick pit stop at your tool box before heading out. Duct tape definitely has its place in the world of recreation and impromptu fun. Here are a couple of ways to use duct tape to create a couple of fun-filled, “sticky” situations.
Use it as a weight – Carry one in each hand to add extra weight to your power walk or jog.
Create great outdoor play activities - Four square boards, Hop scotch boards, finish lines, etc.
Create colorful pennant flags for the tailgate. I recommend burgundy and gold (GO Skins and Hokies) but that’s just me, you can use any team sport colors you want. 
Make a pair of nifty gym shorts... you will likely be the only one trending at the gym wearing them!
Drag out and renew your old sports equipment – duct tape makes a great fix’er and patch’er up’er tool for tents, canoes, footballs, bikes, etc…
Limbo low with a duct tape limbo pole
Get a move on with an old-fashioned game of Tag - “It” or in this game will be known as “Duct Tape It” chases the others and tries to get a piece of duct tape stuck onto their backs.
And of course, you don’t want to forget the tried and true…Duct, Duct, Goose…but please keep the tape off the hair…ouch!
