Greetings! I am Brenda from Schooling a Monkey.com, and I am so excited to share one of my favorite crafts with you today- slime valentines!
We love making slime for every and any occasion. My girls (age 3 and almost 10) LOVE slime and we use it for everything from educational science activities to simple playtime so mom can get a bit of kid-free time!
A lot of children give out candy Valentines, but we like to avoid candy overload, which is why we decided to make these slime valentines! Add the free slime valentines printable and your kids will be the most popular at school this year.
Slime Valentines Recipe
This recipe for slime valentines is super easy, and putting it together in bulk is a breeze!
Use the free printable slime valentines tags to complete your slime valentines.
- Printable slime valentines cards
- Borax laundry booster
- Elmer’s glitter glue or Elmer’s white glue
- Measuring cup
- Small plastic or glass containers (these are similar to what we used)
- Food coloring (if using white glue)
- Several small bowls (2 per color)
- Ribbon or string
Pour 4 ounces of glue into a small bowl. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir until mixed. Add food coloring if using white glue.
Add 1/4 of warm water to a second bowl. Add one teaspoon of Borax and mix until dissolved.
Add the Borax mixture to the glue mixture slowly. The mixture will turn to slime immediately. The more Borax solution you add, the firmer the slime will be.
Remove the slime from the bowl once it reaches the desired consistency. Place the slime into the containers.
Download and print the valentine slime printables and add a valentine tag to each container of slime.
We love the appearance of glitter glue slime, but if you want it to be super stretchy, I recommend using Elmer’s white glue.
