If you tried some of our other slime recipes then you know that we love to make slime right here! Today, we are sharing Valentines Day Slime Recipe. Slime can be a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day.

Kids can have fun by helping you make mud and printing these lovely Valentine’s Day Slime gift labels Happy Valentines slime Day. This Valentine’s Day Slime will make a wonderful present this Valentine’s Day!

You can draw the  Valentine’s Slime gift tags. We have included two colors of choice: pink and red so you can choose the slimy color you want to make. If not, you can do both! We have also included a sticky safety label to stick to the back of the labels. 

This is important if you want to give them to other kids because not everyone is aware of slimy safety.

Slime Safety Tips: It is homemade clay made with love by using glue, baking soda, and a solution of contact lenses. If you have a sensitivity to these ingredients, please do not use them. Slime should not be placed in your mouth and you must wash your hands after use. Adult monitoring is recommended. 

What you need

  • 1 Bottle of Elmer’s Glitter Glue (6 oz)
  • 1/4 cup water 
  • Red & Pink Glitter
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution – must contain boric acid and sodium borate
  • Small Mason Jars
  • Cardstock
  • Red & White Twine

How to Make Valentines Day Slime

We did two glitter glue slimes – that was red clay.

And these are the pink ones.

Once you have made both slimes, you can fill your little mason jars. According to your size of jars, you should be able to get 2-3 jars with one batch/recipe. We filled two little mason jars with one lot.

Now add your gift labels with a little twine wrapped around the pot!

Instructions (step by step)

Go find a bowl and mix your slimy ingredients.

Pour all of your 6oz Elmer’s Glitter Glue into the bowl (or 3/4 cup of glue from a larger bottle).

Elmer’s Red & Pink Glitter Glue was used.

Add your 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda and stir well.

Also, add up to 1/4 cup of water if you want more stretch mud.

You can add extra glittering too.

Slowly add your contact lens solution (Remember: your contact lens solution should contain boric acid or your clay will not develop).

Add slowly and stir if possible so that you can adjust and make sure you are not adding too much.

We like to add in 1 tablespoon to begin and then blend. Then slowly add the remaining.

Knead and stir carefully before adding more than you want to add too much or your clay will become too hard.

You may not need the total, so take that step slowly.

Now blend until your slime forms and begins to harden.

Bring it out and knead, knead, knead. You may be amazed how much you need to knead to really make the slimy shape. It will be very sticky at this stage. Especially if you use water. Continue mixing and stretching the clay and it will become less sticky.

If not, the desirable consistency will continue to knead.

Only add a little more contact solution one teaspoon at a time to prevent the slime from becoming too hard.

If you think it’s still too sticky, add some baby lotion or oil to your hands.
