Hi What glue did you use for the small parts? I was hoping to do this for a classroom and have kids be able to do it without using a hot glue gun. Thanks!
We like this brand. It’s non-toxic and extra strong.
Hi!! Lovely post, wich paint do you use to paint the sticks?
We like to use acrylic paint.
I have a 3 year old granddaughter who loves crafts. Also, have a 15 month grandson coming up for crafts.
