Melting Heart Slime Recipe (affiliate links provided)
- 2 Cups of red glitter glue (you can also use clear glue and add glitter)
- 1 & 1/2 cups very warm water
- Red glitter if extra sparkle is desired (we used extra to get super sparkly slime)
- Optional addition- 3-5 drops of rose oil, chocolate essential oil, chocolate extract, or another favorite valentines scent
Combine the above ingredients in a bowl and mix well
In a Separate Bowl Combine
- 3/4 tsp borax
- 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water
Once the ingredients of both bowls are mixed combine them and mix well. As you mix the ingredients the slime will form. There will be left over water in the bowl which can be discarded. If the slime is at all runny or overly sticky simply dissolve a tiny amount of borax in a teaspoon of water and mix it into the slime. This always does the trick. We scented our melting heart slime with rose oil, but you could scent your slime with another favorite scent or leave it unscented
Melting heart slime is so fun for kids and makes a perfect no candy valentine
What kid wouldn't love to get a heart container of slime, right?
I found the heart containers at the Dollar Tree and have also seen them at Michaels. You could just as easily use small zip seal bags. Here are a couple free printables if you would like to make these valentines for your little ones. Melting heart slime also makes a great party favor. One batch of slime will fill roughly 15 hearts.
Rosie and Jewel have really enjoyed their heart slime, and they are excited to give some to their friends.
