Let me introduce you to my new friend, Mavalus tape.
Why is he my new friend? Because I have cinderblock walls and slick laminate bookshelves, and I used to spend/waste part of my day picking up my signs that had fallen down. Over. And over.
No more! Mavalus tape sticks. It really sticks. If you look at the corporate web page, you can watch videos where people see what odd things they can stick to the wall with Mavalus tape. For example, they stick a 5-pound ream of printer paper to the wall with 6 inches of Mavalus tape. Cool!
Here's my Mavalus tape in action.
I was so happy with these cute and colorful signs in our everybody section. I attached them with sticky-tack at the start of the school year. But every morning, when I walked in, I'd find a few on the floor. Sometimes, in the middle of a story, one of the signs would suddenly take a dive. No, that didn't distract the kindergarteners at all!
A first grade teacher told me about Mavalus tape, swears by it, and I gave it a try. HOORAY! It really works! My signs are staying up! I don't have to waste time every day picking decorations up from the floor. That makes me very happy with my new friend, Mr. Mavalus Tape.
I found my tape at a teacher supply store, in several different colors. If you can't find it there, you can always find it on Amazon.
