When you were a kid did you....?

....put Elmer's glue all over your hands and let it dry then try to peel it off like it was dead skin trying hard to to get the largest piece without tearing it as possible?

Did you ever put a safety pin in your finger through only the first layer of skin and pretend you had a pin stuck in you?

I don't know why but at lunch today I remembered doing this stuff. LOL.

Update:

I had no idea this question would be such a hit and so quickly, LOL. Most every answer so far got a big "thumbs up" from me :-) And yes, I do remember making booger balls with rubber cement too...oh the memories of childhood!!

    Man did we go to the same school or something?? I also used to put elmers glue on my hands and wait for it to dry then peel it off, it made my hands soooooo soft sometimes I still do it now and I did the safety pin trick too.

    Elmer's glue on the fingernails was the trick Dragon liked.

    Yes, Dragon put pins through the first layer of skin to pretend like she was a magnet. She still does that sometimes.

    RAWR!!! ♥

    Wow! that takes me back. I used to love to do those things especially with the glue. I don't know why but I used to put the glue on my hands and peel it off all of the time when in elementary and middle school. It felt good and I don't know why.

    LOLOL...almost forgot about the glue, that was back in the 50s.

    We used to do that at primary school, of course you could only put the glue on the palm of your hand, otherwise the teacher would notice. (living in the Netherlands, we used "Velpon"-glue!)

    Never heard of the trick with the safety-pin.....did people (like teachers or parents) fall for it?

    OMGSH! I think this is the best and most real question that has been asked on this site since I've been a part of it! You rock! Yeah, I did both of those things as a child and the glue thing I've done as an adult.

    I still the Elmer's Glue thing.

    And I replaced the safety pinning with tattoos and piercings.

    The glue thing was fun! It felt so good to peel it off. Also, running your fingers through a lit candle really quick was fun too.

    I would put safety pins through the skin in my arms, I was a weird kid.
