Missing glue stick lids drives me nuts! I find it so frustrating when one of my little friends announces that a brand new glue stick is going in the garbage because it spent the whole night without a lid! Ugh! So when I saw all the teachers posting glue pots on Instagram I knew I had found the answer to my prayers! They were super easy to make and really affordable. Nice! I hit the dollar store and Walmart and got everything I needed. I love that they are small enough that I have enough for everyone in the class. I cut the sponges with a bread knife so the edges were nice and clean. I poured a little bit of glue in the bottom of the container first, then I put the piece of sponge in the bottom and poured white glue over the top. Within minutes I could see the sponge starting to swell as it absorbed the glue. Presto! 20 mini pots ready to go!
Have a great night!
