Make Your Own Rubber Band Wall

Make Your Own Rubber Band Wall

My little girl loves playing with her rubber band wall. My husband and I set ours up next to our kitchen. This is a great way for her to learn and play and create shapes. It is also a win for me because I can keep an eye on her while I am busy in the kitchen.

There are a few things to think about when considering the location for your rubber band wall at your own home. For example the height and age of your child or children, as well as what might be existing in your space or on your wall. (In our rubber band wall space there is a heating vent we had to accommodate for by cutting a hole the size of the vent) This is why no direct measurements for the actual frame are given. This can be as big or as small as you desire. So be creative, it’s your wall!

Supplies: 

  • Nails
  • Screws
  • Bolts ¼in – 20 x 1-1/2in (QTY 100)
  • Nuts ¼ in -20 (QTY 100)
  • Peg Board
  • (4) Frame Wood Dimension, variable dependant on molding
  • Rubber Bands (various sizes)

Tip: I have even used old headbands and sewn together 1/4″ elastic band scraps for longer stretchy bands.

 

Tools Needed:

  • Eye Protection
  • Hand Protection
  • Hearing Protection as Needed
  • Saw (Table, Hand, Circular)
  • (2) ¼” Wrenches
  • Hammer
  • Drill
  • Air Stapler
  • Deep Well ¼” Socket
  • Pencil
  • Tape Measure

 

Instructions:

Step 5: Turn the peg board around. Thread the bolts from behind so that the nuts are on the exterior of your wall. Layout your bolt pattern. Considerations for this, age of children using, rubber bands on hand and type of bands you would like to use as well as age of bands.

Step 6: Screw bolt and nuts together on peg board. I chose nylon nuts so they couldn’t back off and be a choking hazard as my little one is not yet 2. You could substitute friction or lock washers with normal ¼” nuts.
