The hot glue gun family dollar, for those of you who don’t know, is the toy that my grandpa bought me when I was just three. I remember it vividly. He took me to the garage and handed me a paper doll with four little plastic hands sticking up. “I made this while I was working in my spare time,” he said. “I couldn’t get too many sticks made so I went and got you.”
The first thing he did was load up his black sock with glue, crayons, and a few other supplies. When he saw the black sock he knew that I was going to enjoy playing with the hot glue gun family dollar. There were only three things that he wanted to make sure of though. They were, how much is a hot glue gun at family dollar, what color is black, and how long is a black sock.
To test the accuracy of the gun, he took a piece of paper and dipped it into glue for one minute. Then dipped it into hot glue for thirty seconds. If the black sock stayed still when it came out of the hot glue gun, it was accurate. The length of the black sock was also important because he wanted to be able to play with it for long hours. He would be surprised if anyone tried to play with the hot glue gun in anything but a mop head, so he chose the shortest length possible. After the experiment, he came up with a perfect game – hot glue sticks!
Now let’s talk about how much is a hot glue gun at family dollar. My grandpa was right, the dollar store sells them for only ten cents each. If you buy fifty of them you are paying an absolute fortune for those hot glue guns. So, you need to find another use for the white sock.
A great game to play with kids is “wash vs. dry wash.” Take a white sock and place it inside a black sock. Have your kids run around the house with the white sock on their hands and run the hot glue gun over the black sock. The more times they put the black sock through the hot glue gun, the shorter it gets. So it will take about fifty tries for the black sock to come out completely. Then each kid has to take his/her sock out and the younger kids have to put it back in.
This is a great game that utilizes the creativity of children. You can also make up other games to play with the kids such as “water balloon toss” or “hot potato.” If you want to make a dollar game with the entire family then set up a jar with quarters and some orange juice and a jar of ketchup and a bowl of popcorn. Pass each person out as you go. Make sure everyone has enough popcorn and ketchup so that none of them get too hot.
After each family member has passed out he/she has to get a piece of paper and write down his/her name. Once the person whose name is written down gets to pick a dollar from the jar. The person whose name is written down first then picks a dollar from the jar. So the first person’s dollar is the one he/she picks. This can keep going until someone gets to choose a dollar from the jar.
If you want to have even more fun with this game you can add some hot glue gun magic markers to the black sock. This will make it very easy to tell who picked what dollar. You could also get some colored markers for the kids. They could write down names and they could color the jar. That’s just one idea, but it’s sure to be a lot of fun for the family.
