Dried Up Glue Caps? Engage Your Students with this Free Game

Dried Up Glue Caps? Engage Your Students with this Free Game

Today we’re continuing our Make & Take Series: Turning Classroom Trash Into Instructional Treasure! So far we’ve made Fruit Cup Dice Holders and Marker Cap Finger Pointers.  This week I’m going to share a way to reuse glue stick or bottle caps to make a fun game for students. If you’ve been stock piling them because you knew they would be useful someday for something, well, that day is here! I’m going to show you how you can turn old caps into a fun and engaging game for your students!

These fun and editable games will leave your students asking for more!

 First, make sure your caps are clean. You can then use a sharpie to write the answers to the game(s) you’re using on top of the caps.Reuse dried up glue caps or bottle caps to play this free find and cover game with editable versions included

I like printing the  game boards on colored paper to brighten them up, but it’s not necessary. I do recommend laminating them for longer wear. You can store the caps in a baggie or a small container.

If you don’t have glue caps, bottle caps work perfectly as well, and having a variety of colors and sizes just adds to the fun!
