Sticky Situation

I spent the morning volunteering at a local school's summer day camp program.
Today, they were doing a lesson on cattle and animal by-products.
And...we made glue!

It actually went really well.
We didn't really boil hooves for our glue.
Ours involved powdered milk, vinegar, and baking soda.
It was pretty easy. actually worked!

After they made their glue...
They actually used their glue to make By-Product Bingo cards.

I enjoyed telling the kids about all of the things that are made using beef by-products.
"Ewwww, my marshmallows have cows in them?!?!"

And...I only wanted to slap one kid.
So in my book, that equals a very successful day!

Glad I'm not the only one that feels that way when dealing with other peoples kids. Guess that's why we're not teachers.
