I saw this idea on Pintrest (which I still have no clue how to use, so if you "follow" me there that's why everything is so jumbled...) or maybe it was on a blog somewhere...I forget, I was like 6 months pregnant and didn't bookmark or "pin it" (because I don't know how to pin stuff...), I apologize to whomever it was that came up with the idea, I can't give them credit! But here it is anyway...with photos!
What You'll Need...
- NEW Bath Toys with Holes in them (We have Rubber Duckies) (or totally dry, free of fluids ones)
- Low Temp Glue Gun
- Extra Glue for your Glue Gun (I use Multi-Temp Glue)
- Glasses, Jars, Shot Glasses...anything to hold your toys hole side up
Here's a close up of the difference... The blue ducky was flat, the yellow was not. I don't think it makes much of a difference, but it might make them float "funny", I haven't taken ours for a test swim yet.
I think it is pretty darned important (and that's why I didn't mention it first...who would do that?) to mention that I used Low Temp Hot Glue! You don't want to use the High temp stuff...you could burn/melt your bath toys and really injure yourself if you drip it on you! The low temp stuff won't kill your toys and if you accidentally get a body part between the ducky and the glue gun (with a string of glue still keeping the two attached), you won't get hurt when said glue hits you too!
Also, if the glue starts pulling away from your toy, just pull it off and apply fresh glue! Just make sure there's no fluid in your toy.
Now, go glue all your bath toys shut! I need to go do laundry...
