If you don’t know me, I’m all about keeping electronics out of the hands of the kids as much as possible. Not to say they don’t have tablets, but I like to encourage learning to some degree, the “old fashion way”. So even as babies I always opted less for the battery operated toys. So when I found the idea on pinterest for a Day Care Sensory Board, my mind clicked and thought “Hmmm what a great functional decorating idea.” And so a project was born.
Presently I’m in the process of creating tactile wall hangers. First I did what any socially connected person would do in 2018, I put a call out to Facebook for friends that might have some scrap fabrics. Luckily a friend of mine sent me an entire box of fabric swatches, vibrant colors, textures and more. She had an array I hadn’t even dreamed of being able to find on my own. All I’d found were some nice soft fabrics and some bright colors.
- Find a variety of fabrics
- Take one back ground fabric and affix some smaller tactile or bright color swatches to it.
- Hem the sides of the base fabric
Presently, I’m working through attempting to affix the first one to his wall and I will update with photos of his room and the final results as I finish.
