Glue Sponges

Hey friends! I have been using my glue sponges for a few weeks now and I decided to go ahead and blog about how much I LOVE them! I got this idea from Greg at The Kindergarten Smorgasboard.

I decided that sharing glue sponges wasn't an option this year. Every year you have different types of students, and last year it is better for us not to share. I found these ziploc containers at Target, and I got several packs. I also got these sponges at Target. I got the good sponges because I figured, Go big or Go home! I don't regret it, because they lasted all year!


Then, I cut the sponges in half, length wise. They don't completely cover the bottom, but they cover it good enough to use for one student.


Next, you need to cover the bottom of the containers with glue put the sponge in, and cover the top of the sponge with glue. I bought glue when it was on sale at the beginning of the year  (last year) and then decided that I would just buy the huge container from amazon. It was worth every 15.00 penny because I used it again this year.

The kids just cut out the item, place it on the sponge and tap and then glue! They may get a little glue on their fingers but it wipes off easily. It has really helped and I no longer buy glue sticks unless I need it for a huge piece of paper!

Here is a short little video of one of my friends using her glue sponge! You won't regret it, I promise!

  1. Ohh for sure. This is a nice and friendly tip and I think kids might actually like gluing this way. Thank you for such a useful tip
