valentine's day slime

The best kids’ crafts are the gooiest – or so we hear! Your little one will have tons of fun mixing adding some love with this Valentine's Day Slime. 
Step 1

Project Notes:

   -   When you’re crafting with little ones, keep an eye on the glitter and spangles, since these may present a choking hazard.
   -  When making slime, be smart and protect your work surface with wax (or parchment) paper. You also may want to wear an apron (or other protective garment) to avoid slime-related accidents.


Start by finding your favorite clear glue slime recipe to use for this batch of Sparkly Pink slime.

Step 2

Follow your recipe’s instructions to make a batch of clear slime. Mix in just a little pink icing color to turn it pale pink.

TIP: Dip a craft stick into the icing color container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring, in order to avoid cross-contamination.

Step 3
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or parchment) paper and sprinkle in just a little Silver glitter. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitter into the slime.
Step 4

Repeat this technique to add the tiny pink hearts, tiny iridescent white stars and larger magenta foil hearts from the spangle pack. Continue folding and stretching until all the mix-ins are evenly distributed throughout the slime.

TIP: When you’re done playing, make sure to store your slime in an airtight container (or a re-sealable plastic bag).
