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.

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
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 the Valentine’s Day Slime until it’s no longer sticking to your fingers.
Store your Valentine’s Day Slime 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.
