    Can I attach things to desks with hot glue, with the ability to remove the glue later?

    I've heard of people putting down a little painters tape, then putting the hot glue on top. That way, it's easy to remove without risk of damaging anything.

    I don't think removing it will be too much of an issue, especially if you have like a paint scraper or something. I'd be more worried about getting it to actually stay.

    This sounds like a great idea! I already use painters tape for everything else it seems. I'm going to have to try this out when I'm in my classroom tomorrow.

    You can pick the hot glue off when you need to! I use hot glue for everything!

    Hot glue is great.
