Materials

 

Cardboard squares 1’x1’

Cardboard (from appliance box)

Glue

Zip ties (optional)

Velcro

NOTE:

This is a temporary sensory wall.

For a permanent sensory wall it is recommended to use 1’x1’ squares of wood and attach to a wall securely.

Directions

 

Cut cardboard into 1 foot x 1 foot squares

 

*Hint

Attach two cardboard squares to make them sturdier

 

Decide which materials you want to use

Attach enough of each material to cover 1’x1’ squares

 

*Hint

Hot glue works best for most materials; however, I recommend craft glue (tacky glue).

 

Allow to dry for at least 24hrs

Attach each square to large side of appliance box using Velcro or magnets

Alternate between different types of textures etc…

 

Attach completed sensory wall to classroom wall, door, or floor

Use Velcro (heavy duty) or screws
