Adhering things to walls

My classroom was painted over the summer and my director doesn't want us to use tape or Velcro to adhere things to the wall like we used to. Can anyone recommend a good strong adhesive that won't ruin the walls. I need to hang things like my ABC charts, rules chart, etc. Thank you so much.

Perhaps she would make an exception for Mauvelous tape. It doesn't take the paint off the walls. It was the only tape we were allowed to use in our new wing when we first moved in. Eight years later and the rules have relaxed alot!

I second the mauvelous tape. It really works without taking off paint.

masking tape and painters tape won't take off the paint either.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to check out the mauvelous tape and a few other things mentioned. I got so tired of things falling off the wall last year before the paint job that I used a glue gun to stick some things up and when I pulled them off, the paint did come off. Could be that our school is really really old and the walls have been painted so many times that they just couldn't take the glue from the glue gun.

That's very interesting. You must have to use an extension cord to do that.

I wonder how much temperature and humidity play into it? I know on the mainland we used this blue goey stuff that turned into a huge sticky mess here (Hawaii).

I HATE Sticky tac, and that is all we're allowed to use. Also, our rooms were just painted (the reason we're only allowed to use sticky tac), and it takes off huge chunks paint AND the plaster. I think it's a combination of the frigid air conditioner and no sunlight (we don't have windows).

Does anyone else share my pain of having to put 4 little balls in the corner of each child's artwork? And then they sneak over and rip the corners so that they can get some of the sticky tac to play with. I HATE IT SO MUCH.

What about hot gluing clothespins to the wall and then clipping on your posters, artwork, etc?
