Glitter and slime. Two words that strike fear in the hearts of parents and glee in the hearts of children. Since I believe learning should be fun and hands-on as much as possible, I’m going to make the case that making glitter slime can be educational. Every once in a while we need to set aside our dread of messes just to have a little educational fun, right? Come on! You can do it! Let’s talk about how to make Valentine’s Day slime!

How to Make Valentine’s Day Slime
This borax-free slime recipe only requires a few inexpensive ingredients that you likely already have on hand in your home. Because it’s borax-free, it’s not harsh on skin either, so it’s safer to play with. (If you have very young children, though, make sure they don’t try to eat it! It is pretty, but it contains dish soap.)

Many young children (and even older ones, to be honest) enjoy doing sensory activities. This Valentine’s Day slime is a great way to meet a sensory need or provide some fun sensory play.
