I've been working with my little ones on closing the bottles and wiping them
off. I tried to convince them that it's great fun to pick the glue off your
fingers, but some aren't convinced! *L* As for the glue scribbling, I made a
big deal out of "NO SQUISHIES". Squishies are ugly and they stick to other
stuff and they are no fun to have around. Most of the kids really understood
this idea and would ask for paper towels if they got a squishey, so they are
more aware anyways.
