I was thrilled when I was selected for the Glue Dots Summer Bonding Project through TwitterMoms. Drama King is a huge arts and craft kid. He loves coloring, painting, and making projects. You can’t imagine the look on his face when I told him we were going to try out a new glue process. You would have thought he won the lottery.
Of course, Drama King had a million projects running through his mind and he’s been working primarily on his own for the last few weeks. I had to show him how to apply glue dots a few times before he got the hang of it but now he can zip though a project in record time. Although there are times, he has opted to use glue sticks or standard glue because “it just needs more than a dot.”
Drama King has made numerous musical shakers out of toilet paper rolls, construction paper and rice, photo collages from magazine, shapes and letters cut outs, animal stick puppets, and many other projects. Some of these we have made in the past with standard glue or glue sticks but this time we tried making them with Glue Dots. While the Glue Dots are a lot less messy and extremely easy to use, sometimes you really need more than a simple dot. This is where the Dot N Go dispensers become useful. The dispenser is similar to other rolling dispensers (think white out lines) and rolls out a line of dots quickly.
The only downfall I noticed is they are time consuming to individually place dots for young children and the Dot N Go’s are a tad large for little hands. Although after some trial and error, kids will learn how to use the dots but if you have a child that gets bored or frustrated easily; you might want to stick to standard glue or glue sticks.
