What’s better than a good slime recipe? Valentine’s Day Slime! Perfect for the holiday coming up and literally take only 5 minutes to make for hours of fun.
Recently I found the BEST slime recipe and we can’t stop making it! It’s only three ingredients, and it’s not sticky or stringy so it doesn’t make a mess! We also like THIS slime recipe too. We just like slime around our house, and if your kids are anything like mine, I’m sure they do too! This is also a great sensory activity, as the different textures are fun for kids to explore.

Valentine’s Day Slime DIY
Disclaimer: Always supervise children under three years of age when playing with Valentine’s Day Slime. The confetti could pose a choking hazard if swallowed.
What you need
1/2 cup clear school glue
1/2 cup water
Valentine Confetti (I used this one and it turned out SO pretty!)
1/2 cup Liquid Starch
How to Make Valentine’s Day Slime
In a large bowl, combine the glue and the water and mix until well combined. The water and the glue will mix and will make a thin, runny liquid. Add in your confetti. If you buy the package we suggested above, use about half the package and it should be the right ratio. If not, add a couple of tablespoons of confetti to take your slime from normal slime to Valentine’s Day Slime.
After you have the confetti mixed in, add the half cup of liquid starch and mix. You will notice it starts to change consistency immediately! Keep mixing until it’s no longer sticky. Switch from mixing with a spatula to mixing with your hands. Press and squeeze theÂ Valentine’s Day Slime until it’s no longer sticking to your fingers.
Store yourÂ Valentine’s Day SlimeÂ in an air-tight container to be able to play with it again and again! If you keep it in a container, it may firm up a bit when stored. If you remove it from its container and squeeze it around for a while, it will get soft and stretchy again. Much like play dough, when cooled, the slime will be a little stiffer and will need to warm up before it’s soft again.

This looks like super fun Marissa! I don’t think any of our kids are having Valentine’s Day parties at school this year, but if they were I would totally package this up in little plastic containers an give it away as a party favor!

This looks super fun! I’m going to have to find out what “liquid starch” is in Italian and give this a try!
My daughter loves making slime, but hasn’t done one with clear glue yet. She will love making this pretty slime for Valentine’s Day!
This is a fun and cute slime recipe. I bet the kids would love to share it with their classmates.

How fun! This would be a great science experiment for a class. I love that it has a more clear appearance than stark white. It helps the glitter shine through.

Oh this looks like so much fun for kids. I loved slime growing up.
We instituted a slime ban last year after quite a few things were damaged. But I think the kids have learned their lesson and are ready to be responsible with it. This slime is so fun with the mixed in confetti. Perfect for a welcoming back to the slime.

Interesting take on making slime with a Valentine’s theme. Shows you can make anything, even slime, with some flair!

We just made slime for the first time over the weekend. It didn’t turn out but it was a really complicated recipe. I can’t wait to try yours next time!
Oh my goodness! This is such a great idea! My kid will go crazy for this!
Angela Ricardo Bethea says
I totally love this brilliant idea! Very artistic, cute and would make an ideal present for fellow kiddos this coming Valentiens day. I definitely will sugest this page to my best friend for her son.
How much glue do I need to make enough for 20 kids?
Each batch could be broken up and split between 3 kids- 4 if you do smaller portions. For 20 kids I’d go with about 3.5 cups of each ingredient and use as much confetti as you desire.
