How about making some awesome crunchy slime!? Adding colorful slime craft beads to your slime recipe adds a neat texture that’s super addicting to play with and also EASY to make. Oh and not to mention the crunchy sound it makes when squished…😍 You can add them to your favorite slime recipe, or try using this simple recipe I’m sharing today using contact solution.
Tips for making Valentine’s Day slime:
- I find that Elmer’s brand glue yields the best slime results, so try to use it if possible.
- Make sure the brand of contact solution contains boric acid and sodium borate so it’ll work as an activator Renu or Blink are some brands to consider for making slime. For an alternative, try using 1/2 cup of liquid starch like Stay-Flo instead of contact solution and baking soda.
- As far as storage goes, slime can be kept for around a week if it’s kept covered in a bag or container!

How about making little individually packaged slime to share with friends? My daughter and I made a few batches of this Crunchy Slime and packaged it in some 2 oz. sized cups with lids.
Grab the FREE printable labels I’ve designed and just tape them on the lid for a really fun and easy Valentine’s Day idea!
These are so darn cute!
In case you’re wondering, one batch of this slime will fill about seven of these small containers. One year my daughter gave slime to all her friends on Valentine’s Day and she was so excited about it! Such a fun little project. Enjoy!
