They think tape fixes everything. Even boo-boos.
I guess I know why Scotch calls it MAGIC tape.
With back to school, we use tape even more. This weekend my son has a project where he has to decorate the cover of his ‘writer’s notebook’ and I’m sure we will be using a bunch of Scotch Magic tape to help inspire his creativity. We also use Scotch Magic tape to put up some his best work on a specific spot on his wall in his room – we’ve found it doesn’t leave marks on the wall and comes off fairly easy when it’s time to put up the next work of art. Another big use of Scotch Magic tape in our house is for Box Tops for Education. Our school sends home an activity sheet of sorts to encourage the kids to cut out the Box Tops and tape them on the sheet. We fill those up every time they send them home.
Recently Scotch has released a more modern version of their Magic tape. It is Magic greener tape and it is made from over 75% recycled or plant-based materials meaning it is better for the environment but has the same performance as it did before. In addition to the greener tape product, Scotch has some creative new dispensers that make it even easier to use tape in your household and school projects.
The Scotch Magic Tape One-Handed Dispenser makes it easy to apply whatever length of tape you need quickly and easily with one hand. You simply roll the dispenser across a flat surface, stop, and press the button on top to cut the tape. There is a blade in this, so you will need to be careful about who in your household uses it, but it does stay inside the dispenser even when cutting. This dispenser is refillable too.
The other product is the Scotch Pop-Up Refillable Deskgrip Dispenser makes it easy to quickly access pre-cut smaller lengths of tape with one hand right on your desktop, or in my case, countertop. The unit has a rubber suction grip that surprised the heck out of me. It actually works. You can pul la strip of tape out of the dispenser and the tape comes out but the dispenser stays put. I also like that the kids can’t use too much of it this way. The pieces are pre-cut, they just pull and apply.
I love that Scotch has made their tape more environmentally friendly and has created some great new products perfect for the busy mom for common household uses and the numerous school uses we will have for it throughout the year.
