Craft glue

Craft glue

Every have that moment when your 5-year old tells you about some art & craft activity that’s due in the next day? And it’s 8 o’clock. Half an hour past bedtime?  No? Just me? Really? Are you sure you don’t want to admit it and make me feel slightly more competent?

Well recently, Yasmin had to do an activity on transport. I managed to scrummage around the house at night to find a shoe box, some empty toilet rolls, some tissue paper but I couldn’t find any glue.  Not in the art and crafts box.  Not in the bedroom cupboard. Or my secret stash in the garage. They found that already. Why, oh, why? Where has all the glue gone? Why is it that my children use the Craft Glue for glitter and stickers, sequins and leaves, buttons and flowers….and when I actually need it, for homework, there is no glue to be found.

So a quick Google search and luckily, found a wonderful recipe of Thermomix Children’s Craft Glue online. Thank goodness for Google. And for Thermomix. And for the lovely lady called Peta who writes a beautiful blog, The Road to Loving My Thermomix. Thank you. You saved me last night.

However, the recipes here are using food ingredients – sugar, spices, coconut oil, food colouring etc. which I do cook with so I am happy to make ‘beauty’ products using my Thermomix. I also have multiple TM bowls, so I can safely use separate bowls for making these without any cross contamination. If in any doubt, don’t make them.
