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. ValenSlime.

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 every day. 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.
