How did you know I like playing with Elmer's Glue? And that's not just because my dad's name is Elmer. Seriously. We still have about 6 bottles of Elmer's Glue in the house. Love that stuff! using it to make ghosts is such a cool idea. :-)Shirley

Hi Shirley,

I thought playing with Elmer's glue was just a universal thing. I feel I must show Max how to peel it off his fingers at some point. wink As long as you have patience and a place to keep them while they are drying, you can make tons of these.
