I thought colored glue sticks were a neat idea. They go on with a bright color and dry clear. Unfortunately, to an almost-2 year old, the colorful stick is too good to avoid. She got hold of a purple glue stick and proceeded to smear it all over her lips and chin like chapstick. Yep, she thought it was chapstick. I’m thankful they are “non-toxic” and that I found her before she glued her mouth closed. Silly girl!
