I am so excited to finally be able to share the wonderful Valentine’s Day project I was able to share on CraftyMorning.com! Michelle just had an adorable baby and is taking a break, so a bunch of other bloggers have stepped in to help her out! I am so pleased how our project turned out and am thrilled to share it with you today. Michelle is so sweet and it was a pleasure to help her out while she cares for her new little one.
Slime Valentines (with Free Printable!)
I wanted to create a fun printable, pun-filled valentine that wasn’t candy-based, so we came up with a way to incorporate our favorite thing: slime. We love using slime for pretty much everything, because it feels weird, is easy to make, and makes science a lot more fun. Slime was one of our favorite STEM activities from last summer and we’ve made it multiple times since.
My kids go mad for slime, so it was the perfect way to keep them from eating even more candy. After Christmas, my children have definitely had plenty of candy that will last well into February. They certainly don’t need extra candy for this holiday!
If you also do not want to contribute to Valentine’s Day candy overload, these valentines are so cute and easy to put together. We made up our batch of slime valentines in less than 10 minutes.
Check out the directions and get the printable for your slime valentines at CraftyMorning.com!
And while you’re there, don’t forget to tell Michelle congratulations!
