I read an article in Advance for OT about an OT who created a sensory wall. I had the opportunity to make a similar wall in 2006. I used different textures for each character. I used AstroTurf for grass & corrugated cardboard for the tree. Winnie the pooh was soft and Sponge Bob was made of sponges. I also incorporated dressing tasks: the stem of a flower was a zipper, the petals were snaps, and Dora’s Velcro shoes were real Velcro. Hello Kitty had a dress that you could change.
