Art Adventure: Glue Drawing

Kids love glue, so why not make a whole picture out of glue?

Glue Drawing
  • school glue, such as Elmer's
  • wax paper
  • glitter (optional)

Tear off a piece of wax paper. Let your child draw a line drawing by squeezing glue from the bottle. 

Thicker lines will hold up better in the end.

Make sure line interesect and connect or it won't stay together after it's dry. 

Your child can make something recognizable or just scribble.

Once the drawing is complete, have your child add glitter if you want. 

And then let dry. This is the hardest part because if your lines are very thick, it can take as long as overnight.

Once dry, carefully peel the glue away from the wax paper.

Some scribbles, just kind of hang down and create an abstract mobile.

Or it may remain in shape if thicker lines were used, like this spiderweb design. 

Seeing what happens when you peel it off the wax paper is part of the fun.
