Product Review - Glue Dots

I was recently asked to use and review Glue Dots. I've you've never seen them before, check them out here! They are fun and easy to use.

What are Glue Dots? Glue Dots Adhesives are a safer, easier, mess-free alternative to typical tapes and glue guns. Glue Dots provide the strength you need in an adhesive without the mess and dry time required of liquid glues. Glue Dots bond instantly to a wide variety of surfaces including: Paper/photos, Metal, Wood, Plastic, Textiles/Fibers, Plastic, Foam, and more! Find Glue Dots at a retailer near you or online today!

I used them with my 5 year old, Erich to decorate some small cans as Christmas gifts this year. First, he painted on contruction paper, then cut out different shapes. We then used the Glue Dots (both the craft roller and the mini roller) to attach the paper to the cans. We also took foam shapes and used the Glue Dots to attach those to the cans as well.

Here are a couple pictures of the cans.

We really enjoyed using the Glue Dots and I can't wait to find more things to do with them. Erich really enjoyed rolling the roller to the next dot to stick onto the paper. I really liked that it was easy for him to use and will be using them more for his craft projects in the future.
