Create this Valentine’s Day Slime for your friends, child, or classroom. It’s super stretchy. This contact solution recipe is an easy one to master. If you’re looking for a homemade Valentine’s gift, this slime recipe and/or our Valentine’s Fluffy Slime recipe can be put in a small container or resealable bag.
Valentine’s Day Slime:
- 1 cup Elmer’s Clear School glue
- 2-3 Tbsp. contact lens saline solution
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- unicorn glitter
- heart confetti
- small plastic hearts
- optional: heart shaped cookie cutters and plastic heart containers for extended play
- Pour the glue into a large mixing bowl and stir the baking soda into it.
- Begin to add the contact lens solution a few drops at a time as you stir.
- When you find that the mixture begins to pull away from the bowl, it’s time to begin kneading.
- Add the glitter, hearts, and confetti. Continue kneading.
- If the slime is still too sticky to play with, add one or two more drops of contact solution and knead.
Sensory and Learning Opportunities:
