Elmer’s Glue Kicks Off Slime-Making Contest For Kids Of All Ages
Here's how to enter the competition!
Following a shortage of Elmer’s glue last year thanks to the slime-making craze, the company has decided to jump on the sticky, stretchy bandwagon and take slime-making where it has never gone before.
The company has officially launched its first-ever Ooey Gluey Slime Games, a competition for kids, teens and tweens all over the country to see who can create the most innovative and creative slime video recipes — all for a chance to win some pretty awesome prizes!
