Win-It Wednesday: Elmer’s 1st Day Prize Pack (1 Winner) #the1stDay

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 11, 2012 · 297 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!


Elmer's has been a trusted glue expert for over 60 years. It's the brand of glue that I recall purchasing each back-to-school season when I was little, and it's the brand that I seek out to purchase for my own children today.

In addition to their quality glue products, Elmer's is launching a new app for back to school this year, the Elmer's 1st Day app, a FREE app for iPhone and Android devices to capture, edit and share those priceless first-day-of-school-like moments year after year!

Full of great features for keeping track of those special back to school memories, the 1st Day app does it all:

  • Capture photos within the app or upload existing photos.
  • Create photo collages, add quotes or captions, and organize your photos by date, child or album.
  • Share your 1st day memories with friends and family. They can even download and print the photos themselves.

And one of my favorite features is that for every picture uploaded, Elmer's will donate one product to the Kids In Need Foundation which provides free school supplies to students nationwide!

A couple of weeks ago, Elmer's invited my family to a Columbus Clippers game where they officially debuted the new mobile app and corresponding 1st Day website. We had a blast hanging out with the folks from Elmer's and cheering on our Clippers against the Norfolk Tides.

We even got to meet Elmer himself -- pictured with Krash the crazy parrot! Sadly I didn't manage to wrangle all of the kids together to get a group photo.

I can't wait to use this app on the first day of school, and I'll be digging up all of our older pics to see how the kids have grown over the years. Download the Elmer's 1st Day app now and then enter to win a fantastic 1st Day Prize Pack below!

Today one lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win an Elmer's 1st Day Prize Pack, which includes:

  • Elmer’s School Glue
  • Repositionable School Glue Stick
  • Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks
  • Classic Glitter Glue
  • Mini Bi-Fold Foam Board
  • Project Popperz Reusable Plastic Stencils
  • Swirl Glam Glitter Glue

My favorite way to celebrate the first day of school is to make sure my daughter gets a good night sleep, wake her up a bit early, prepare an awesome breakfast for her and then walk her to her classroom.
