It was time to make a new batch of slime to play with! With Valentine’s day just around the corner I thought we should do a themed Valentine’s day kids activity. So we made this beautiful sparkly scented Valentine’s slime.
It smells so raspberry sweet and it sparkles with glitter and hearts. Here is the recipe below. It is similar to our Slime recipe with australian ingredients.
If you want to read about the science behind making slime, I have written about it in our U.V activated slime.
Step 1 –
Pour in a bottle of Clear School Glue. Ours was 147ml, you can the best slime making clear glue here.
Step 2 –
Fill the bottle up with hot water. Add the same amount of warm to hot water into the same dish and mix it together.
Add this scented glitter glue. Sparkle Gel, it smells like strawberries and raspberries. It smells really sweet and it also adds in heart sequins and glitter. Mix this all in. This glue came in a three pack and it smells divine.
Add Extra Glitter and mix. You can add colour too if you would like. Or some extra heart sequins.
In a separate measuring cup, measure 1/2 cup of hot water and dissolve in 1/2 teaspoon of borax laundry product. Once dissolved, pour this gradually into the glue and water bowl.
Mix slowly. Once it starts to clump you can use your hands to kind of massage the slime until it is a consistency you like.
Play with your slime. Smell how sweet it is. Stretch the slime. Poke it and roll it. Make it into a love heart shape. We love slime, click here to see our Emoji slime that helps develop empathy.
Sparkly lovely scented Valentine’s slime.
This slime turned out lovely, pretty and sparkly. It would be a cute valentine’s day kids activity, or as a little gift. It was especially successful because of the scent. As Miss T played with the scented Valentine’s slime the smell was beautiful. She just loves making any type of recipe and she just loves sensory play, so this was a definite hit with her.
