Bought a TON of super glue and let the kids have at it!! Turned out great!!! Just make sure that you store it out of sight, out of reach, and out of mind from an, ohhh say, mischevious 5 year old!! Washes out of fabrics after it has dried, but of course it stains. We learned that the hard way after the gloop was missing and an empty container appeared!
