elmer's glew crew collection project #cbias #bagitforward

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 6:28 PM
I'm so excited to tell you about another Elmer's project that you can take part in!

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. Students have the chance to win hundreds of prizes but also learn the importance of recycling and why we should do it.

The goal is to collect all the empty glue bottles and glue sticks that kids use through out the year which can be turned in at your local Wal-Mart.

My daughter's class room is taking part in this amazing project so now the question of where to store all the empties. We went to Wal-Mart for some supplies to build our collection box!

got the supplies together... wait, some aren't pictured here, sorry.

oops... not quite the right fit.

almost done!


We made our box with Elmer's No Wrinkle Rubber Cement and Elmer's Bi-Fold Foam Boards. Then decided to cover it with paper. Glued on Elmer's Project Popperz Letters then used Elmer's 3D Washable Paint Pens!

The project only took about half an hour and now the kids will have a pretty box to collect their bottles in!
We delivered the box today and hopefully they can start filling it soon. It's only day 3 of school but we are talking about a 1st grade class so I'm sure the box will be full in no time!

This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Elmer's #BagItForward #collectivebias. I love being apart of the #bagitforward and Glue Crew so all opinions are my own.
