Making Valentine Slime
This Valentine slime recipe will make enough slime to fill about 5-6 small containers. You can double or even triple the recipe if needed to make even more Valentines. It is can easy to multiple this recipe to make as much Valentine’s slime as you need.
1. Start by combining 1 bottle of red glitter glue and ¾ cup of very warm water in a mixing bowl. Mix well until combined.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together 1 tsp of Borax and ⅔ of a cup of very warm water until the Borax is completely dissolved.
3. Combine the Borax mixture with the glue mixture and continue to mix until you reach a slime consistency. This will take some time, and you may even eventually want to start mixing and squeezing it with your hands to help it combine more. If there is excess water, you can pour it out at the end. If desired, add additional glitter into the slime and mix together with hands.
4. Download “Slime for my Valentine” labels here, and print out. For your convenience the download has 10 labels per page.
5. Trace the top of the lids to your containers and cut the labels out to sit inside the top of each small container.
6. Place some slime into each container and close the lids.
7. Use double sided tape to attach a label to the top of each lid. Or, simply peel and stick the labels on the lids if you used sticker paper.
8. Tie a ribbon around each container to add some additional flair (optional).
I hope that you enjoy this fun DIY Valentine Slime craft and that you are your little ones have a very happy Valentine’s Day!

Such a fun gift to give! I just hope all the parents like getting slime. This would make a great party favor.
Hi how many days in advanced could I make this for my boys clAssrooms
Jaclyn Shimmel says
Hi Crystal! That is a great question. Although the slime should keep for AT LEAST a week in an airtight container, I would still try to make it as close to the day you will be handing it out as possible. That way it will last longer for the kids once they have it 🙂
