Sensory Wall Mosaic Art

pattern blocks wall art

Following the huge success of our pattern blocks on contact paper play, I decided to try putting it all up on our wall. Emma helped me place several feet of contact paper, and the kids and I had a blast using pattern blocks to create mosaics on our dining room wall!

The wooden blocks make for an incredible visual and sensory experience! We decided to add in some small foam blocks we had:

These were easier for the kids to stick on, since they are lighter weight – you have to sort of press the pattern blocks on for them to stay – but once up, they’ll stay for hours (it’s been over 48 hours now, and they’ve remained stuck to our wall without any trouble). At first, I worried that the contact paper might ruin the wooden blocks, but it doesn’t seem to be causing any trouble.

Johnny especially loved the feel of the soft foam stuck to the contact paper – all the more since we had the blocks spelling out his and Emma’s names!

We’ll leave this up for a few more days – it’s fun to play with, and beautiful to look at!

    This is such a neat idea. I am going to try it on the wall in my preschool classroom, but I am going to try it with velcro.

    Thank you, I love this! Were they able to remove and restick pieces to make new designs
    each day? I have 18 Kinders and know that they would love to move the designs
    around. I already have plastic wooden pattern blocks but would purchase the light
    foam blocks if they could be pulled off and reused on the same sticky paper over a few
    days. I also have small coloured wooden blocks and will try those as well. I have done this with nature materials on a table and it is awesome.

      They were able to move the pieces around, with no trouble! The paper does slowly become less sticky over time as little hands touch it over and over. :)
