So after the success of my Winter Slime , here I go again with a Fluffy Valentines Slime Recipe. This slime is the stretchiest I have made yet! Such a great recipe, and one that I will be recycling again and again.
Kid’s love slime, FACT. Mine are no exception, and following the success of my Winter Slime Station, my children pressured me to come up with a great slime for Valentines day.
So I ended up experimenting again to come up with the perfect Fluffy Valentines slime recipe, and do you know what? I think I cracked it.
This slime is simply THE stretchiest slime we’ve made and extremely tactile. The kids LOVE IT! Hours of play from just a few minutes of prep.
I’ve learnt alot since making our first lot of slime a few years ago, and if you’re a big slime fan like we are, then I would suggest you visit Little Bins for Little Hands website, which has loads of inspiration and ideas and tons of variation on slime recipes and related projects.
During my experimentations of slime recipes there are several things that I have learnt. It turns out using different contact lens solution and different glues can have an effect on your finished slime. It also turns out that food colouring can be very variable too. I like to use gel food colourings now as the resultant colours seem to be a bit more predictable.
If you’d like to give this recipe a go I have included some links at the end of the post to the products that I used and that I know work well.

Fluffy Valentines Slime Recipe
It doesn’t have to be Valentines slime to be honest, this recipe is easily adaptable to be any colour or type of slime you like. If you don’t want it to be fluffy and want to show off the embelishments more, simply omit the shaving foam. Different colours can make slime for any occasion, or simple let the children have free reign!
I have also made a little video to demonstrate how easy it to put together, which you will find towards the end of the post.
You Will Need (UK measurements):
- 1/3 Cup Clear PVA glue
- 1/3 Cup Water
- 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
- Pink Gel Food Colouring
- Heart Sequins or other embelishments of your choice
- Shaving foam (about 1-2 tablespoons)
- 1-2 tablespoons contact lens solution
How You Make Your Fluffy Valentines Slime
- First add the glue and water to a bowl, stir to combine.
- Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir well until completely dissolved (be careful it doesn’t clump).
- Add a few drops of the food colouring, and stir again.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of shaving foam, and again give it a good stir to mix together.
- Add the sequins and embelishments of your choice. If you want to add glitter then omit the shaving foam as it tends to get a bit lost otherwise. Give it a good stir to evenly distribute them.
- Now for the fun part! Add the lens soloution and stir vigoursly. You will see the slime coming away from the edges of the bowl. Keep stirring until you can’t stir anymore. If it’s still a bit sticky add a touch more contact lens solution.
- Take the slime out of the bowl and kneed it a little to reduce the stickiness.
That’s It! Very simple, and great for the kids to get involved in. I have made a little video for you to explain the process better.
Once you’ve mastered the basic recipe, you can experiment with different colours, glitters and sequins. This slime is super stretchy and very adaptable, and my favourite slime recipe so far.
Are your kids slime made like mine? Have you tried to make slime at home before? I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
