  • Add a few drops of red or pink food coloring to the glue. Mix well until you achieve the desired shade.
  • Stir in glitter and heart-shaped confetti or sequins as much as you like for a sparkly, festive look.

Step 3: Activate the Slime

  • Slowly add liquid starch or a borax solution to the mixture, stirring constantly. Begin with 1/4 cup and add more as needed.
  • Continue to stir until the mixture starts to thicken and pull away from the sides of the bowl. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more activator.

Step 4: Kneading

  • Once the slime has formed, take it out of the bowl and knead it with your hands for a few minutes. This will help improve its texture and consistency.

Step 5: Customize

  • At this point, you can add more glitter, confetti, or even a bit more color if you want to enhance the Valentine’s Day theme.

Step 6: Store and Play

  • Store your Valentine’s Day slime in an airtight container to keep it fresh.
  • Enjoy playing with your festive, themed slime!

Safety Tips:

  • Always supervise children during slime-making.
  • Avoid ingesting any of the materials.
  • Wash hands after playing with slime.

This Valentines Day slime is perfect for a themed party, classroom activity, or just a fun craft to do at home. It’s easy to make and can be customized to suit your personal style. Enjoy your slimy, sparkly creation!
