Any art teacher out there will be able to relate to the excitement of receiving a box of supplies you've ordered! It's like Christmas time!! I am so excited about this new idea I read about on the Getty Art teacher listserve. Clogged glue bottles were the bane of my existence. The little glue bottles with the orange tops constantly got clogged and stuck and you just could not get the glue out without a long and yucky soaking process. The soaking, degunking, refilling and constantly trying to find glue bottles that worked for the little kids was driving me to madness. Someone on the getty listserve posted this brilliant idea to put the glue in these flip top bottles. Minimal clogging! So they all just arrived yesterday and I spent about an hour (while the kids were working) filling them up and recycling all the gunked up glue from the old bottles (we had about 30 that I had been procrastinating on). HOPEFULLy this will work better! The glue comes out faster (obviously) so you have to show the kids how much to use.
