How to Make Glue Sponges: The DIY Kid Craft Supply Teachers & Parents Didn’t Know They Were Missing by Greg Smedley-Warren
Want to know what people ask me about the most?! Glue sponges! What?! You don’t know about the glue sponges? Wait, you aren’t using them? Parents, teachers, you have to switch to the sponge! These are simple to make. Very effective. Easy for students and kids to use. And cheap. I spent $18 to make eight glue sponges. They last the entire year.
Here’s how to make them:
- Pour some glue into a container.
- Put one complete sponge in the container. Cut another sponge in half or one-third to fit (it will vary depending on your container).
- Push the sponges down into the glue.
- Pour the remaining glue over the top of the sponges.
- Place the lid on and let the sponges absorb the glue. These take a few days to soak up the glue and be ready for use.
Here are some helpful glue-sponge tips:
- Spritz the sponges with a mixture of water and Listerine once a week to keep them moist and germ free. I mix in a travel-size bottle of Listerine in a regular spray bottle!
- Add more glue every week or two depending on how much they dry out and how much they get used.
- For larger pieces of paper, teach your kids or students to glue around the edges.
- Make sure the lids are on tight!
