Way back in the dark ages there was a tv commercial for a product called Brylcream. I think men used it to slick their hair back or something. The slogan was "a little dab'll do ya." So that's what I say about applying Elmer's Glue.

(of course I'm not old enough to remember seeing that commercial...)

the tap-n-glue caps were the biggest waste of $$$$.
I bought 25 of them and I mainly got them for the kindergarteners but they were not strong enough to get the glue to come ou. You really have to press hard to get it to come out. I offered them to the rest of my students to use (1-5) and even the 5th graders thought they were "broken" . I myself didn't even want to use it. What a pain it was to glue anything!!! It sounded like a good idea.
Now` for the little ones I pour a small amount of glue onto a yogurt lid and give them little sticks to apply the glue. I tell them "a dot is a lot". (I got that quote from someone on this list years ago. Who was that?)
It is fun to peel off the dried glue in the morning`
