I am a parent of three young kids. As anyone with children will tell you, Trying to do anything with your children around is a challenge to say the least. If you don't have kids just look at any mom at Walmart trying to grocery shop with her kids. Her face will tell the story. The check-out lane seems to be the place of holly terror for me.

Make your own lick and stick stickers.
You will need:
White liquid glue. I use Elmer's.
Tiny pictures, your child's art work, or old stamps.
Mix 2 tsp. glue with 1 tsp.vinegar. With a small paint brush paint the back of the pictures. Lay them flat painted side up, make sure they are not touching one another. When completely dry lick and stick.
P.S. You can use this recipe to replace the sticky on the back of stamps or an envelope.
