School Cancelled Today? Have Your Own Valentine's Day Party, Complete with Crafts Using Glue Dots! - Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

"Wrapping, hanging, decorating, crafting, attaching and repairing just got easier, cleaner and safer with a new everyday adhesive line from Glue Dots® well as mass merchandisers.  

Combining the best qualities of tape and glue, the product delivers strength and versatility in a form that is safe and easy for the whole family to use. 

There are endless uses for Glue Dots around the home, school, and office, including household decorating, gift-wrapping, quick repairs, crafting and school projects.

Glue Dots are available in three formulas: removable, permanent and poster. All three varieties are acid-free, archival-safe and non-toxic. Glue Dots products conform to industry standards (ASTM D-4236) for craft and child safety. Here’s a brief description of each formula:

Removable Glue Dots®: Removable Glue Dots can easily be detached without leaving a messy residue or damaging surfaces. They work on paper, plastic, metal, wood, glass, and more. Use Removable Glue Dots to secure photos or other lightweight items to virtually any surface.

Permanent Glue Dots®:  Permanent Glue Dots are the go-anywhere, do-anything adhesive. They form a strong, instant-bond with staying power on paper, foam, plastic, metal, wood, glass, and other surfaces. Use them for school projects, household fixes, and craft projects -- anywhere you need a secure bond.

Poster Glue Dots®: Use Poster Glue Dots in the home, school and office to hang posters,charts and photos to walls, lockers, windows, and other surfaces. Neater and more secure than putty, tape or tacks, they bond instantly and can be repositioned easily. When you’re ready to take them down, they remove cleanly, leaving no residue, stains or damaging effects on surfaces."


My Thoughts:

The kids were so upset when school was cancelled for a second day in a row, as they would not be able to have their Valentine's Day parties at school today.  So, a few moms from the neighborhood and I got together earlier today with the baked goods we all made for the parties, and had an impromptu Valentine's Day party for the kids, complete with crafting fun.  

I don't know about you, but I don't know what I would do without Pinterest.  I find so many great ideas here, including arts and crafts fun to do with the kids.  Here are just a few I found recently, when looking for fun Valentine's Day crafts to do.  And, they sure did come in handy today when all the kids were here.  

Not only did the kids have a blast with the party we had, but the crafts kept them busy and smiling. And, they all loved using the Glue Dots (Click here to read my previous review of Glue Dots, which I shared last week), and made a point to ask their moms to get some for their craft time. :-)   I loved that the Glue Dots meant no messy clean ups or glue spills. So, it was smiles all around. :-)

You can't have a Valentine's Day party with swapping Valentine's, right?  
Well, the kids had a blast making these cute Valentine's cards, complete with popcorn bags to take home for an upcoming movie night with the family. :-) Learn how to make these cute cards here - Laura Kelly DesignsI personally loved this fun craft with the kids. I have received a handful of the sprout cards in the mail and wondered how they were made.

I hope the above last minute paper craft ideas inspire you to get crafty with your kids this Valentine's Day holiday weekend.  I know many kids who didn't have school today due to the snow, so these crafts not only will keep them from getting bored, but will make for a great impromptu Valentine's Day party - if it is just you and your children. Come on, who doesn't love a party. :-)

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. I would use my glue dots for mounting on a poster board that I am doing for a presentation.
