ValenSLIME

We love to share Valentine’s Day gifts that boys would be happy to share in their classrooms every year. This year we found a fun idea that will please boys and girls. SLIME.

 

Slime is a huge hit right now. So of course it would make sense to use it as a gift during birthday parties, classroom parties ,and valentine’s day.

Slime is also simple to create, easy to customize, and so inexpensive to make in bulk. All you need is a few ingredients, and some little containers to store the slime in. Thanks to Artsy Fartsy Mama we also have an incredibly cool tutorial and free printable for this fun Valenslime!

Artsy Fartsy Mama even has a fun and cool looking 3 ingredient sparkle slime that is perfect for valentine’s day. Simply head on over to her site to get all you need to plan an incredibly cool valenslime treat for your boys to hand out at school.

 

Valentine’s Day Crafts

This month we celebrate the day of love. We can love so many ways in this life. We have hearts that can grow with love everyday. A heart never stops growing, there is room for so much love. In my life alone I love my mom, my dad, my brothers, my sisters, my husband, my daughter, my sons, my dogs, my best friends. Love is endless.

 

Love can be expressed in so many ways. It doesn’t always have to be with money. During the holidays we can get caught up with spending money to show our love and appreciation. But our love can be shown through acts of love as well. I adore when my husband does things for me around the house, I adore when my daughter helps take care of her younger brother, and I love when they work on things together to make me smile.

 

This heart string craft is the perfect craft for valentines day. It is simple, fun, and it embodies love. It does require nails and a hammer, so a parent may want to help with this craft. But once the nails are set the string is very fun to assemble.

 

Thank you to Reality DayDream for the simple beginner string craft. Be sure to head over to Reality DayDream and see all of the other fun crafts you can try at home. We promise you will LOVE it.

 

Art & Eden: Caring about the World and Making a Difference

The world is changing everyday. The last couple of years have shown a great shift in environmental and ethical practices. As Bob Dylan said, “The Times they are a changin!”

What do parents and kids want for this world? They want a safer world, a healthier world, and a better world. How can we all help to do that? Support organizations and companies that use more environmentally safer products and care about their employees.

 

The Boy’s Store is trying to make a difference by offering more organic and USA made brands. One of our favorite environmentally aware and ethical companies is Art & Eden. If you follow us on Facebook you may have seen some of our new items from Art & Eden. We are very excited to bring you more items soon. We love their use of certified organic cotton, fair wages to employees, environmentally friendly packaging, practices, and dyes. They also support artists with their chosen designs and images.

 

You can check out some of the incredible items available from Art & Eden now.
