I am here to set the record straight….yes, the rumors are true. Glue sponges are the best thing invented since sliced bread! They are super easy to make, and way less mess than a kindergartener rubbing his glue stick all over his page and consequently the table.
Recently, I went to grab a glue stick from our class glue stick bucket. I twist the cap off and this is what I find:
That is disgusting! At that point I knew I had to try something new. I have to give props to Greg Smedley over at Kindergarten Smorgasboard is the OG of glue sponges. When I saw these, I knew this is what I had to do. Below, you can find the supply list and the directions for making your very own glue sponge.
What you need:
*A sponge ( i just bought the cheap 4 pack at Target)
* A sealable storage container (They sell a 4 pack at Wal-Mart for less that $2)
Drop a sponge in the container and pour the glue right on top of the sponge. If you have purchased the 7oz bottle of glue, I pour about half of that onto the sponge. That way it is enough to soak in and will last.
Once you have poured the glue on, simply snap on the lid and let it soak overnight. Easy Peezy!
Well there you have it! Those rumors have been put to rest and I can confidently say that glue sponges are the best invention ever!
