Elmer's 1st Day App and Back to School Giveaway *Closed*

It's officially August which means the first day of school will be here before we know it. With Trevor starting preschool this year and Brayden heading into first grade I know I'll be taking tons of photos to capture those memories. Well with the help of their 1st Day mobile app, Elmer's is now making preserving and sharing those memories so much easier!


About Elmer's 1st Day App:
As the Official Sponsor of the 1st Day of School, Elmer’s Products Inc., an industry leader in adhesives, arts and crafts, office and educational products, is proud to introduce a free photo-sharing mobile app and website created to preserve “1st day” memories. For decades, Elmer’s has played a major role in the back-to-school season and, in celebration of this special time of year, Elmer’s 1st Day app provides an easy way for parents to capture priceless moments as their child grows.

Using the 1st Day app, parents can snap photos and create albums to share with family and friends. Once logged on to the secure 1st Day website, where images and albums are automatically synched up from the app, users can create slideshows, add colorful borders and share galleries via email and on Facebook. The app is also an excellent way for teachers to journal milestones as they upload photos of their room, art projects and events throughout the year and share them with peers and parents.

Continuing its commitment to the community and the education of young people, Elmer’s will donate one product for each photo upload (up to 200,000 uploads) to the Kids In Need Foundation, which provides free school supplies to students in need.

The free 1st Day app can be downloaded on iPhone and Android mobile devices by scanning the QR code found on select Elmer’s glue bottles and in-store school supply displays or directly from the iTunes Store or Google Play.

**Win It**
Along with this fun new mobile app, Elmer's is also offering one lucky Life With Two Boys reader a Back to School prize pack that includes:

*2 disappearing purple glue sticks
*2 bottles of school glue 
*1 X-ACTO pencil sharpener
*1 pkg of colored glue sticks
*$25 Walmart gift card
(ARV $45)
