Default Glue for popsicle sticks?

I've bought a whole bunch of popsicle sticks to make Buzz a house and a ladder, but I don't know what type of glue to use. I'm assuming that flour-water glue that I've used in the past wouldn't work since popsicle sticks can be difficult to glue together. I don't know what type of non toxic glue I can use that will be strong enough. What type of glue would you recommend? Would a PVA glue stick suffice?

I bought some PVA the other day - it says non toxic on the front so am hoping it is ok! You can get it in most craft places, places like WHS Smith etc. Some supermarkets do it too - it is usually with the children's craft And it dries clear too so you won't see it after!

Sorry, that was meant to be WH Smith, not WHS Smith! This is the one I got WHSmith Multi-Purpose PVA Glue - Stationery | WHSmith - I think it comes in different sizes?

I use non toxic hot glue for most of my hammy projects.
