Glue gun crafts for kids are a great way to spend time with your children while crafting and creating fun projects together.
My kids love it when I get the glue gun out. They know that we are going to be making super fun and cool crafts. There are so many possibilities that come when you use a glue gun. You can make crafts in all kinds of shapes and structures that you can’t with normal craft glue. You’ll have so much fun with these Glue Gun Crafts for Kids!
Glue guns typically aren’t kid-friendly which is why I usually have to help the kids out with it. I love it because it gives me the chance to be with them while they create. These are moments that I cherish so much. I love to see their minds blossom while they are designing and creating!
Glue Gun Crafts for Kids
The last time we got the glue gun out I taught my kids How to Make Forky from Toy Story 4. That was definitely a craft to remember. They absolutely loved it and they played with it all the time. It was so great to know that they could make something fun like that with me especially when they were so into the movie!
Supplies Needed To Make Glue Gun Crafts for Kids
To make sure that you have what you need to make sturdy and lasting glue gun crafts, here are a few things I think you will need:
- Glue gun: You’ll want to make sure that you have a sturdy and well working glue gun. Having a reliable glue gun will ensure that the glue will melt properly to be a good adhesive.
- Glue gun stand: Having a glue gun stand can help to keep the dripping glue on the tip from getting on your crafts and gives it a safe place to set it down.
- Sturdy materials: Popsicle sticks, twigs and branches, cardboard, clothespins. These are all sturdy and great materials to work with when you are working with hot glue. The glue sticks well and they hold structures together.
