Just last week I shared about the Elmer’s Bag It Forward SIMPLE Service Project. It has been a great thing to be a part of and, as I shared, my son was involved in it as well. Recently, our art teacher, sent home a request for art supplies. Thanks to Bag It Forward with Elmer’s, we were able to pick up much needed art supplies including Elmer’s glue.
We also found the glitter glue. Glitter. Glue. I think I could have bought every single one. I spent half my time trying to explain the awesomeness to my son who was kinda shocked by my glitter glue passion.
My son picked up quite a few different Elmer’s products as we also made a dash for the watercolors and crayons too.
We brainstormed many different items that would work in an art bag but eventually decided on the basics.
What is so great about donating the supplies to our art teacher is that not only does it help other children but my son will also be using the supplies as well. He was very excited about it and couldn’t wait to give it to his art teacher!
When we arrived at school we found out our teacher had a knee injury and would be out for a few weeks. My son was still very thrilled to donate the supplies and we left them with the front desk to give to her when she returns. This has been a great lesson for my son, he was able to pick the supplies and we had many discussions about giving back to others.
Huge thanks to Elmer’s for letting us participate in such an awesome project!
