We are not big Valentine’s day celebrators in my house but I do run a party business and quite a few Valentine’s day party/decoration requests
This Valentine’s day I thought I would do something a little different and share my Slime recipe.
Slime parties are quite popular at the moment, along with all the other sensory parties. Although the slightly older children (school-age) tend to choose slime. Remember slime is NOT taste safe so not for little ones who are still exploring the world with their mouths.
- White or Clear PVA School Glue
- A Slime Activator (must contain some form of borax, sodium borate, or boric acid)
- Food coloring, glitter, confetti, and other fun mix-ins
A few things to consider when choosing your ingredients. You can add shaving foam for a different texture and not all glitter is made equal.
Side note – Did you know that glitter is just really small pieces of plastic? There are a few companies making eco-glitter
I choose some heart-shaped glitter and pink ultra-fine glitter for this batch
Not eco-friendly, just given to me by a Balloon Library community member so I rather use it up than throw it away.
Steps to Make it:
To get started, you will need to fill two bowls with 1/2 cup water each. Add 1/2 cup of the clear glue to one bowl. Mix well and then stir in the fine glitter and glitter confetti. You can add as much or little as you like. Add 1/2 teaspoon of your slime activator to the other bowl and mix together.
Slowly stir the slime activator mixture into the bowl with the glittered glue. It will start to get “goopy” immediately. Mix until all the liquid is dissolved.
That’s it! All done! You have just created some really cool Valentine’s Day slime!
It Is such a cute little craft project for Valentine’s Day. If you are hosting a Valentine’s Day party and are going to make some themed slime as your party activity? Why not purchase some heart-shaped silicone moles for the kids to store their slime? You can use some cellophane bags to wrap them up and your party guests can take them home as their party favour
If you give it a go, I would love to see the result! Please post it to Instagram and give me a tag #mylittleonesparty
