I had run across a lot of craft projects in the past that called for colored glue. Like a ninny I went out to the store in search of colored glue only to be told everywhere that it was not sold there. So, I finally figured that it must be something I had to make myself. That being the case, I came up with the process you see below to make colored glue that is perfect for kids crafts like the one you will see posted here tomorrow!
- Several bottles of white or clear school glue
- Food coloring in various colors
- Plastic cups
- A straw or stick for stirring
Empty an entire bottle of glue into a plastic cup. It is easier if you empty a small amount of glue out of the bottle before beginning so that it isn’t overflowing when you go to pour it back into the bottle.
Place several drops of food coloring into the cup with the glue.
Stir the glue and food coloring together. You can add more food coloring as necessary to get the colors you want.
Pour the colored glue back into its original bottle and shake well to ensure all the glue is mixed with the coloring.
The only cost involved is the price of the glue itself and a few drops of food coloring, so $.25 or so if you get the glue in a back to school sale like we did.
