Glue sticks are nice, but expensive. And just because they are glue sticks

them cut out all the shapes first, then apply white glue (with fingers)
white glue which has been squeezed onto magazine pages and let dry until
it's somewhat tacky. This works well. I'm guessing that the pieces of

Subject: Thanks Re(2): collage idea for kinder

look at and some of my kinders will be able to draw fruit shapes to cut out.
Some will need assistance with the shapes, and that will be okay. Just
everybody in my kinder can cut out a drawn shape with reasonable accuracy.
Now, I had planned on using glue sticks. . . .is this another brain lapse?
