Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Fix It Up Match
Add a ring of hot glue around a match stick
Then when you need to fix something you can light your match and the glue will melt allowing you to smother the glue onto something and fix it:)
Step 2: Slippery Socks and Hangers
Add dots of glue to your fuzzy night socks and make them no slip! To make hangers not drop your clothes make squiggles on the top parts of the hangers
Step 3: Melted Crayon Drawing
DISCLAIMER I am not responsible for any damage done to your glue gun or any injuries to you
Stick a crayon were you usually put you glue and have a piece of paper ready to draw melted crayon on
Step 4: Make Up Brush Cleaner
What you need
Piece of plastic that you don't need
Take your glue gun and make a bunch of dots/chevron pattern/ stripes on the plastic
Use by taking your make up brush and the plastic and run the bristles along it while water is running on it
Step 5: More Glue?!
Take your next glue stick and melt the tip of it with the glue gun. Then attach the melty tip onto the old one and so when you are nearing the end of the other glue stick it won't fall out.
Step 6: A Little Extra From Sixsmith
Denatured alcohol is great for removing hot glue
A spritz ofCanned "air" held upside down will set hot glue super fast
