Note: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Elmer’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
My kids would spend all day paper crafting if I would let them, so when I had the chance to check out the new Elmer’s Naturals products with them, I jumped at the chance! The younger two kids could spend hours drawing, cutting, and gluing things together. Unfortunately, the past two weeks have been crazy insane so we haven’t gotten a chance to make any really cool projects yet with the glue. Monkey got to check it out by making a flower project for her teacher for teacher’s appreciation week.
Now, from Elmer’s, glue sticks with glue made from over 88% natural ingredients! Elmer’s Naturals School Glue Sticks are made from plants, a rapidly renewable resource, and is just as safe and non-toxic as Elmer’s School Glue Sticks. In addition, the glue stick containers are made from 25% post-industrial recycled plastic with a label made from FSC certified paper and printed with soy inks. Glue sticks apply and dry clear. Any excess glue can be cleaned with soap and water and can be washed out of clothing.
If you look where the stems come into the dirt, you can even see the seeds that the flowers came out of. She is very detailed with all of her drawings. My first day home from my trip, Little Man pulled out some paper and the Elmer’s Naturals glue stick and made a popcorn bucket with popcorn in it. Sometimes you really have to use your imagination with his crafts.
The Naturals glue holds just as well as all Elmer’s products. We’ve not run into any problems with the glue not staying stuck to the paper and it has washed off the kids and my table easily.
