Liquid Glue Ideas

I used to think that as long as a person had a few glue sticks around the house,  there was really no point in buying the liquid stuff.  I have since changed my mind; there are SO many other uses for the liquid variety beyond sticking two pieces of paper together.  Now when the stores have their back-to-school craft supply specials I buy the stuff in BULK.  Here are a few of the reasons why:

Glue Paint from Teach Preschool
Colored Glue Suncatchers from Time for Play
Salad Spinner Sun from De Tout et de Rien
Homemade Slime from Having Fun at Home
Glow-in-the-Dark Glue Paint from Train Up a Child
Magic Rainbow Rice Letters from The Outlaw Mom
Glue Batik Fabric from Come Together Kids
Puffy Snowmen from Juggling with Kids
Glue Mobile Balloons from Juicy Bits
Nature Shadow Boxes from Teach Preschool
Glue Rubbings from Putti Prapancha
Homemade Puffy Paints from Carrots are Orange
DIY Bouncy Balls from Free Fun in Austin

Awesome! A few things I knew, a couple I didn't and lots of new ones to discover. I love this stuff. First one we're trying are the sun catchers!
