In our weekly toddler art classes, we usually include a large scale sensory project on the wall! Last week we pulled out all the stops and created a huge layered Sensory Fringe Fabric Wall made out of recycled cotton sheets.
This had all the makings of a great experience for the little ones – a perfect combination of texture & movement & interesting materials. It didn’t take long to prep – we tore strips into large sections of fabric and layered them on the wall and then gave the kids all sorts of painting tools (brushes, rollers, spray bottles) and different types of paint & other stuff (fluorescent tempera, liquid watercolor, shaving cream & sparkle paint). They really enjoyed the sensory fringe fabric wall ! And we have a ton of colorful fringe left over to decorate the studio!
Can’t you picture this as a great outdoor activity in the summer? Tie these to a fence & when you’re done, just hose everything off, and do it again the next day!
