When we were looking into sensory toys to make for Henry, we kept seeing these sensory activity walls on Pinterest, and really like them. Our apartment has a fairly sizeable hallway between our bedrooms and the bathroom, so we’re using it as additional play space. Since it’s a hallway though, we didn’t want large toys in the space, so using the wall space was the perfect solution. We did have trouble finding flat toys that easily affixed to our board, so we improvised with balls, rope and some IKEA finds. We have some large wiffle balls and drawer pulls for him to pull himself up on, a knotted rope for the same purpose, some small wiffle balls on a rope to push back and forth, a magnetic board and a bin that we’ve put some bumpy sensory balls in.
Henry was a big fan and tried out everything on the wall after we installed it and let him loose on it.
Details: The rope & wiffle balls are from Canadian Tire. The magnetic board, green storage bin and drawer pulls are from IKEA. The jumbo magnetic letters are from Indigo.
