With kids going back to school, there are lots of new ways to help your school to earn extra money and promote recycling in the class room. Elmer’s Glue has a wonderful program that I just found out about and can’t wait to tell you guys all about it.
It’s called Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program. Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program is a fun, hands-on way to teach about recycling. As a program member, you’ll have access to plenty of helpful recycling-related curriculum and fun projects to keep your kids excited about recycling.
So have your kids start saving those empty glue bottles, Collect them, drop them off, Teach’em and win prices. That’s it, as easy as 1,2,3 on how to participate in this program. For more information, be sure to check out Elmer’s info page. The best part, you don’t have to worry about finding a location or a collection box, any local Walmart will be able to take your empty bottles and forward them for you to Elmer’s. How cool is that, no extra shipping fees, no hassle!!
We decided to give one of our Kindergarten Teachers a head start and my Tween was going to created and decorated a Glue Collection box. So off to Walmart we went.
Did you have any idea that Elmer’s has lots of different products? I always thought Elmer’s was glue…. but they have way more than glue. They have Markers, Glitter Glue, Display boards and even pencil cases.
My tween looked around a few different isles, even the scrapbook isle and kept coming back to the large selection of Elmer’s products. He decided on a Foam Tri-Fold display board, 3D Washable paint pens and Project Popperz Dual-tip.
We had a blast coming up with ideas on how to create our collection box. This is what the Tween ended up with.
The Teen took the display board, cut it in half and taped it together in a box, cut a smaller square out of an extra foam piece that we bought and used it as a bottom for our box. He taped all the edges together with packaging tape. Very simple and easy to do, the Tween had a lot of fun coming up with the design.
Once the box was assembled, the Tween went online to Elmer’s Glue Crew and printed some Collection Box Templates. He decorated our collection box with the glitter glue and some creative ideas.
Our Tween took a lot of pride in creating the Elmer’s Glue Collection box and this is what our project looked like in the end.
Didn’t it turn out great? I can’t wait to present it to one of our teachers and hope she will be able to collect lots of empty Elmer’s glue bottles for her class. Unfortunately the Tween had to go to his school, so the Toddler and I went to the local Elementary school to meet up with a wonderful Kindergarten teacher. She was so surprised about our Elmer’s Glue Collection box and couldn’t wait to hear all about the program.
We are so excited and can’t wait to save all the glue bottles this school year and help kids understand how to recycle and what recycling means.Did you know that they Elmer’s is a Upromise partner and that every time you purchase an Elmer’s or Krazy Glue product with your registered drug or grocery card, a percentage of your purchase will be put into your Upromise account?More information can be found here.
