Colored Tape Classroom Hacks

There are so many uses for bright tape in the classroom. Colorful tape is by far the best for multipurposes because you can use them to color code items and help with classroom organization. You don't have to be a crafty teacher to do these hacks. Practical uses for different types of tape for the classroom are organizing your Chromebooks and iPads, marking off desks and chairs for physical distancing, sectioning your whiteboard, and decorating the classroom with some color.

I love to find awesome classroom organization ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commision for purchases using my links. Learn more. The ideas and paid links below are based on Amazon finds that are interesting colored tape classroom hacks.

  • Organizing your classroom devices: Use colored masking tape (#ad) in your classroom to organize your laptop cart.

  • Use bright colored floor tape as markers to keep student desks distanced at specified measurements apart. Students just have to look down and adjust their tables. See a similar idea for taping around the desk area in this blog post about the new normal in classrooms.


  • Use tape to divide long tables: For students that have to share a table, use colored masking tape to split the table top in half for students to have a clearly defined working area for themselves.

  • For math: This teacher used neon Gaffer tape (#ad) for teaching. Her students made angle art.

  • Decorate your classroom door with tape art (#ad).

  • Have neon on black cupboards: This style is great for a chalkboard themed classroom. Cover your classroom cupboards in black contact paper, them line the edges with colored tape. This tape collection is available on Amazon at a good price. You can even get your bulletin boards to match this theme. I put together some ideas for some neon-on-black classroom decor ideas in this chalkboard classroom decor blog post.

I also like washi tape and created a list of some washi tape classroom ideas in this blogpost

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
