Hi all, I tried this project and if anyone could suggest a better method of gluing with hot glue cleanly that would be a plus!! I came away with frustrated burnt fingers. The gluing leaves a lot to be desired. I would like to have so much glue to clean up! It is a challenge to apply a thin line of glue to the very thin edge of the Popsicle. I have yet to do this project w my students because of the gluing! Another thing...with the glue oozing on to other areas the paint is hard to cover it. All suggestions welcome. It is a cute project.
Thank you!

You could use wood glue! no heat and you can clean up the access. It's a little more money,but safer for kids and no burning!
