Glueing is a fun way to work together to create an original work of art that can can support fine motor coordination and provide a new and engaging creative experience.
In the past, teachers have offered glue alongside a paintbrush or something that can be used as a paintbrush (flowers, leaves, sticks, pipe cleaners, etc.) and materials that children can use to stick to a paper. Both solid and liquid glue offer different, fun, sensory experiences.
The Room 3 teachers suggest putting down big pieces of paper or newspaper over the surface you plan on using to work, and then having a warm, wet cloth around to wipe off excess glue and your child's hands.
