Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and you're going to need a fun activity for you and your kids to do! If you haven't thought of a kid-friendly activity that everyone will love, then this Valentine's Day Slime is for you! Slime is great when you make it yourself.

Ingredients

  • 1 (6 ounce) bottles Elmer's Glue in pink glitter
  • About ½ cup warm water
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon contact lens solution (containing boric acid), for each batch

Instructions

  1. Empty the glue into a large bowl. 
  2. Fill the empty glue bottle about ⅓ full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into the bowl with glue and stir to combine.
  3. Add the baking soda to the glue and stir to mix thoroughly. 
  4. If you are adding additional glitter, food coloring, scents, or confetti, stir into the glue mixture before adding the contact lens solution.
  5. Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well. (Note: regular glue will require less contact lens solution than glitter glue. Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.)
  6. Remove the slime from the bowl. The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, stretching or kneading it as you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when it is no longer sticky.
  7. Best if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator when not in use.
