It’s always a good time to celebrate the people you love, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to do just that. While many of us think of romantic love when it comes to Valentine’s Day, the holiday can be so much more than that. For example, it can be an opportunity to remind your little ones how special they are to you. Showering your child with an extra dose of love doesn’t have to be complicated; it can be as simple as organizing a special activity to do together (adding in their favorite candy or treat doesn’t hurt either!).

If you’re not sure what activity to choose for your child this Valentine’s Day, you’re in luck. Here are some holiday-inspired slime recipes you can either make or play with together.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
