  2. Favorite glue memory is how as a child, our art class project in 3rd grade was to tear colored tissue paper into pieces, and glue the pieces onto white cardboard to make "stained glass". Lots of glue used!

  4. I'm not sure this is a memory I'm all that proud of, but I remember when were were in elementary school we'd spread Elmer's glue on a finger and let it dry. When it dried we would peel it off and look at our fingerprints in it!

  5. I remember when I was little my sister showed me that if you put glue dots on a piece of plastic they would dry that way so we would make glue dots and then wait for them to dry and then would stick them on our fingernails and pretend to give each other manicures with them.

  14. My favorite glue memory is the time me and my brother were playing tug of war in the living room and broke our mom's lamp. We didn't want her to find out so we glued all the pieces together. We gobbed the glue on really thick and held it with our hands till the glue dried. Needless to say when we unstuck our hands from the lamp the entire lamp crashed to the floor and broke in hundreds of pieces. We had to accept the fact mom was going to find out. Thank you so much!

  20. Some time ago, when our cats were kittens, I had some projects spread out that were drying. One of the kittens managed to get up on the counter (not an easy feat, since he was quite small) and walked across the drying area. Naturally, he stuck. My grandson came in carrying kitten and stuck on papers. I had to redo the project, but they were fairly easy to get off his paws, but he did have quite a bit of residue stuck in his fur. After clipping most of it away and giving him a bath, he looked rather strange for awhile!

  36. My favorite glue memory is the time we used a cookie cutter in the shape of a ghost. We then put waxed paper on the bottom and filled it with glue. After it became a little more solid we added a string to hang the ghost up. We then let it dry and added a mouth and googly eyes.

  37. I always remember spreading the glue thinly over our hands and then pealing it off. It looked liked a snake shedding its skin. We would say, "ewwww" and then do it again, hahaha.

Well we wrapped our presents using the flour and water "glue" mixture, we woke up on Christmas to see that every present was covered in mold! Its funny now but wasn't then.

  74. I was doing arts and crafts with these kids I had babysat at the time. We were working with construction paper and glue at the coffee table. I left to get the door for a moment and when I came back the three little kids had covered their arms, legs and cheeks in glue! I panicked at the time but now I think it's hillarious! While I was washing them off (which was a pain) I said "It's not soap you guys!" and they said "Yeah but it feels good when you take it off when it go dry dry!" CUTE!
