I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Elmer’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I am always trying to come up with fun, creative ideas for gifts for family, friends, teachers, and so on that we can make. That means that in our house, we go through a *lot* of glue. Glue sticks, school glue – you name it, we have a stash here that’s always being used by at least one of the kids.
That’s why I was so excited to be selected for this campaign with Elmer’s Naturals. For this review, we received a bottle of Elmer’s Naturals School Glue and a two-pack of Elmer’s Naturals School Glue Sticks.
While we have used the glue every day for some project or another, I wanted to show you how we used the Elmer’s Naturals Glue to make Mother’s Day cards for MawMaw and Granny. (Hubby’s Mom and My Grandmother.)
First, I created one flower petal as a template, and then cut out 7 different colored petals for each flower card (one for each child) :
After that, I let Parker glue the petals on to one of the flower centers with the Elmer’s Naturals Glue stick while I glued the other petals together for the other card:
Once we got it all glued together, I let each child decorate their petal however they wanted to. (I did help Gage and Carly a little bit, although Gage really went to town with his marker.) Here is the end result:
I loved the way the cards turned out so much that I hoped the kids would make one for me, too. And guess what? I woke up Sunday morning, and the kids couldn’t wait to give me the flower card they had made just for me! It was so sweet.
I am super impressed with Elmer’s Naturals Glue. It works every bit as well as their regular school glue, only I don’t have to worry if Mr. Rotten ends up getting a hold of it:
The glue is a little different in color from the regular Elmer’s School Glue, but it still goes on clear and dries clear. Elmer’s® School Glue Naturals™ is the FIRST and ONLY school glue made with naturally occurring ingredients (corn and soybeans) and available in recycled packaging. Even the label on the package is printed with Soy inks. It doesn’t have a harsh smell, and I love it just as much as the original Elmer’s School glue – if not more!
Overall, this crafty mom is super impressed with Elmer’s School Glue Naturals and would highly recommend it to anyone who uses school glue a lot, has kids, or just wants to use a product that’s better for the environment.
I encourage you to engage with Elmer’s in the following ways:

Thank you, Mom Central and Elmer’s for allowing me to test out the new Natural’s Line. I am definitely going to be using these products with more and more of our craft projects. I just love it!
