You may wonder why we are showing glue for Teens. Believe it or not they still like making things like slime and Elmer’s Glow in the Dark Glue takes it one more step.

    • The glue comes in plenty of fun neon colors to choose from, including natural, pink, and blue
    • The glow-in-the-dark glue takes wacky science projects and arts & crafts to the next level with a luminous twist! The glue is easy to use, specially formulated washable and nontoxic
    • Their triangular shape is great for guiding finger placement and easier control, and the thick lead decreases the instances of breakage to ease the writing process, providing children with the resources to achieve quality penmanship

Snacks for Teens:

Portion Control snacks for Teens and their families

My teens can go through a gallon of ice cream and a bag of chips without even realizing they did it. Here are some great portion control snacks that they will love?

Stock up on Snacks for work or school lunch boxes:  Salsa and Tortilla Chips snack packs.

Fresh Cravings snack packs bring excitement to kids’ school lunches, curb hungry after-school appetites, and also offer a healthier snack option for busy parents who are always on the ‘go.’ My teens are too lazy to take out the chips and salsa and pack them for a snack, this is the perfect alternative.

Made with fresh vine-ripened tomatoes and crisp, hand-picked vegetables, along with zesty peppers and spices, Fresh Cravings salsa is never cooked, which gives it a fresh authentic taste. These snack packs come in Fresh Cravings’ most popular recipe, Restaurant Style, in Mild heat. They include just the right amount of tortilla chips for it to be a nourishing treat without worrying about portion control. They are sold in Walmart stores for $1.78 and can be found in the produce section.


Your kids won’t eat a full pint of ice cream when they can savor individual mochi ice cream bites. The newest craze in frozen treats. My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream is a colorful, gluten- and rBST-free snack made with a scoop of premium ice cream wrapped in pillowy rice dough. At just 110 calories per ball, it is the perfect, portion-controlled summer treat.

The original offering comes in 8 delectable flavors and we’ve also recently launched an “inside out” version AND a vegan line made with cashew cream. So, there’s something for everyone even moms who might need to hide these from their hungry teens.
