  • I've never heard of glue anything with Karo. isn't it a bit too runny?
    how about non toxic paste?

  • cut them in half to make it easier for the glue to hold.

  • You can glue them on with super glue... but only YOU can do that. They can hand you the jelly beans. LOL!

  • not sure but we always used elmers in school. i am afraid hot glue would just melt the gummies. Elmers works well for macaroni noodles and Karo is not going to "dry" all the way. the jellies will just fall off

  • Is the idea that you want something not just non-toxic but edible?

    Try cornstarch mixed with a bit of cold water to make a paste. It dries, and it sticks.

    If edibility isn't an issue, I would use tiny drops from a glue gun. Or, to be kid friendly, Elmer's glue (but it will have to dry really well before you can move it, or it they will roll off!!)

  • I agree with rubber cement. It's easy to use and the kids will love it because it makes "Glue boogers" lol, well, my kids enjoy it ;)
